The Bat Bridge in Austin, TX

An April 2003 trip to Austin by lorrainemarie

Quote: In downtown Austin, close to the capitol, you can view the largest colony of bats in North America.

Attraction | "Bat Colony"

Quote:
You arrive just before sunset. People sit in on blankets by the river and wait for the bats to come out from beneath the bridge. When they emerge, it is a like a huge swarm and you can barely see the Austin sky. This occurance has been featured on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.
