If you suspect a bat, then it is hunting insects. One way to be sure is to get a slingshot and shoot small beans or dried peas up into the air. If
it is a bat, it will certainly try and check it out. If you could get some of those plastic airsoft bb's that glow in the dark, even better as you
could follow it with your eyes and be positive if something flew near it.
I live in Mass, and the thought of large bats freak me out, and hope it turns out to just be a night hawk or something similar.
