Last week we made our premier on PBS’s Live Here. In our first segment, we touched on how we got our start and we take you into the nest of a golden-fronted woodpecker. We will be featured in upcoming segments of Panhandle’s PBS Live Here so stay tuned for more behind the scenes interviews and wildlife from across the state.
We hope that everyone is able to break free from captivity and spend some time outside on Earth Day. For those of you who are still trapped inside, here is a landscape of Palo Duro Canyon State Park we shot yesterday. Enjoy and see you outside.
Today is bat appreciation day and we felt the need to pay homage to the many species of bats we have filmed. Brazilian free-tailed bats, a hoary bat, a Townsend’s big-eared bat, cave myotis and a pallid bat are highlighted in the video below. Feel free to spread the appreciation!

Last weekend we got to spend the day rooting around in a cave. Caves are one of our favorite hangout places being the big bat fans that we are. Even more exciting, Ray and I gave a tour to the landowners and the ranch manager’s family! We got two species of bat, the Brazilian free-tailed bat and the Townsend’s big-eared bat. We are glad to report that everyone had the time of their lives and the kids loved scaling the canyon walls, crawling through the caves and coming face to face with bats! Big thanks to everyone for the great memories!
Here we are under a colony of 10,000 + Brazilian free-tailed bats
