The Song Meter Micro is designed for continuous recording of frequencies up to 20 kHz, which is the upper frequency limit of human hearing. There are some bat species whose vocalizations fall within this frequency range, but most bat species cannot be recorded with the Micro. A recorder with a much higher-frequency recording range and the ability to trigger recording based on incoming ultrasound, such as a Song Meter Mini Bat or Song Meter SM4Bat FS, is much better suited for recording bats.
