Hi, Pretty exciting!! Even if it is not a longear! The last Georgia sighting according to ebird.org was 6 1/2 years ago in Clarke County. It would be very rare here, but not impossible. Nearby pines would indeed be the place to look for a roosting bird. Even if it was a skinny great horned, that is a cool sighting!
