[Geysers] Animals around Thermal Areas

No bats this past summer and the guano pile was lower than I remember.  I
suspect the guano washes out with each rain, especially a heavy one.

Can't remember the last year we saw bats at Bat Pool.  There were 
several years when they came and went during the summer.  Could be 
that the crack isn't big enough for the bats and the guano.

Heated stumps?  Don't know where to look for those?
