Totally off topic, but, poking around on NPR I found this.
|What wasn't known until recently is that the giant noctule may be the only bat that eats birds on the wing. Popa-Lisseanu thinks it starts when the noctules fly thousands of feet up into the night sky. Then they use radar calls to lock in on a migrating songbird beneath them. Then the bat swoops in for the kill.|
"They wrap the prey between their wings and the tail membrane," Popa-Lisseanu says, "so they make kind of a cage for the bird."
She says the bats eat just the "most profitable parts" of the migrating bird, such as the breast, where birds accumulate fat and muscle.
Of course, bats didn't do this til after The Fall.
