Two of them came from Monte Casino Catholic School buildings about 100 years old so I figure they got a roost in the school somewhere maybe several. They’ve called me several times on Big Browns and I think I picked up an Evening bat from there too. I always have to use my ID sheet and weigh and measure them to make sure there not a small big brown or something else they all checked right across. I find their fur darker and silkier than a big brown at least the ones I’ve had. Oh and I’m pretty sure they’ve all been males too.
It still surprises me that you get little brown bats. In all the years Beverly has been doing bat rehab, she has never gotten one, so I guess you've gotten lucky. They're not native to my part of the state, so I've definitely never gotten one. The only one I've ever seen in real life was one at Bat World.

Don’t rely too heavily on those maps. Their produced by Natureserve.org I was finding discripancies in number of species in Oklahoma from BCI, our Conservation department and IUCN, and USGS. After talking with Natureserve. (Nature Conservancy and the Haritage Foundation) There is a lot of assumptions used. Things like if they don’t get a report on a certain bat they may remove that species from their list. Thay had Little brown listed as endangered on their map for Okalahoma (I get a couple every year) that’s when I found out it has nothing to do if the state protects the animal it’s from their own scientists and their estimates as to where the bats are located. In Oklahoma depending on who’s list you use you could have 22 species or as many 28. It would be great if there was some way to tag every bat and see where they are located maybe in a 100 years or so it will be possible putting nanites in bugs or
