When do our local bats migrate away from this area? Is that once rainy season begins? By what time of year are they gone? I’m planning on doing a project which would be greatly hampered if they were still present.

Yes they are here!

When do those bats migrate out of here? Which month do they leave?

I'm not sure they do leave.  The climate here is good for year round residence.  We may get bats from the north in winter.

Someone suggested they are seasonal, when the rains come they leave for the rest of the year.  Then they come back in Jan? Just trying to zero in on a month so I can schedule this project.

You might get more information if you ask someone like John Pint,  who writes for the Guadalajara Reporter,  and can probably be contacted through the paper.

I did not have bats here in November, December or January.  They hit my hummingbird feeders when they around and they are around now.

There are two basic types of bats, insect eaters and fruit. They move to where the food is. Many do not move and forage up to 50 km.

The fruit bats would empty my humming bird feeder over night. They are fast hard to see. 

Plus a great food source in China.

The fruit bats at my house are gone during the winter.  I have not noticed anything different during the rainy season.  Although, I must say I have fewer bats at night this year

As you can see by the previous maps migration or not and timing depends on what species of bat you are referrinf to.
