Bat Matters - And then there were 4

I placed the 6 Freetails into their rescue box in the aviary a few nights ago, and they were much happier. Still no sign of them flying, but the chances are they didn't like being watched. Four of them were eating well, one not so well, and one had to be forced.

Last night a cold front and thunder storns came through. I considered bringinh the bats in, but they have to get used to weather, especially if they're going to be in it.

This morning I checked on them, and there were only 4 in the box. I didn't need more than a quick search of the floor to find two tiny bodies. They were the pair that didn't eat so well.

I don't know if the thunder drove them out, or if they were out and couldn't find the box.

I feel like shit.
