recent question...

" what does bat poop/pee look like? and would they congregate in a tree in a pretty busy neighborhood? "

Answer/

Pee is usually clear as Megabats digest very quickly and absorb as much nutrients as possible.

Poo depends on what they are eating.
It is the same shape as humans, except very small.
Colour can reflect what they just eaten.
Example, yellow (light n dark) to very black.
Black, runny and smelly could be due to palm tree fruit. Most palm's were introduced by humans and are considered as a weed. Cocos palm is the worst. Providing this food source, the bats now get blamed.
Usually Megabats will poo immediately if scared or stressed out of a tree. Hence the poo on fences, roof or car.
Bats prefer to poo/wee hanging in a tree by thumbs/arms. Not in flight.

Yes, they will group together. a camp is usually near water/creek.
A group away from camp could be in a tree that is proving a food source or they are resting when on the move.

Bats have been in a busy neighborhood for a very long time.
Neighborhood's/towns have been built around bats.

A camp, has most likely been used for >1000's of years. depending on the season/environment, different camps are used.
