The red bat doesn’t live in caves. It’s a tree bat. In this story the little red bat falls to the ground when the autumn leaf she’s clinging to is hit by a cold gust of wind. It must be time to migrate. But she’s not sure she wants to migrate.

Excellent source of information on red bats, and other creatures that live in the forest. The illustrations are wonderful, too!
