Welcome to Word of the Week! Stay tuned for a new word each week to amp up your nature vocabulary!

Word of the week is Colony [KOL] + [UH] + [NEE] (noun): a group, or gathering of bats is often called a colony. Sometimes it can also be referred to as a cloud, or cauldron.

To be a bat colony the group of bats only needs to have as few as TWO bats.

In honour of Halloween this week – we thought we would feature the word of the week as a group of bats! Happy Halloween!
