Giant — whats?
MADANG, PNG — As we drove toward Madang town today, I saw huge black things flying around. Crows? Raptors? No — bats! Huge, enormous bats. Flying foxes, they call them.
They were everywhere in the city, jostling for positions in the trees and sometimes streaming overhead in tremendous numbers, all the while screeching and carrying on like hellions.
In town, I also saw Rock Doves and Pacific Swallows.
