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.

Austin Bats

Attraction | "Bat Colony"

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.
