We report the first finding, in July 2016, of Myotis grisescens (Gray Bat) roosts in North Carolina. This species was formerly considered a rare visitor because occupied caves have not been found in the state. After receiving a tip about bats roosting in a bridge, we acoustically detected Gray Bats during an emergence count. Further investigation led to the discovery of 7 Gray Bat roosts in western North Carolina bridges in 2016.
