Tallowwood Ridge flying-fox camp by Tim Pearson published on 2016-08-14T11:18:35Z Daytime in a flying-fox camp. Flying-foxes are large bats, nectivorous and frugivorous, and roost during the day in the tops of trees in numbers up to the tens of thousands. They spend around half their day asleep, and half grooming and socialising. Vocal communication is a key component of their socialising. This recording was taken in a flying-fox camp near Dorrigo, northern NSW. The camp is in a gully in wet sclerophyll forest, remote from any anthropomorphic influence. The bats present here are all Grey-headed flying-foxes, Pteropus poliocephalus.
