A Must See !!! Austin Bats, Largest Urban Bat Colony in North America.

The Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue bridge in downtown Austin is the spring and summer home to some 750,000 bats with up to 1.5 million bats at the peak of the bat-watching season. Take a walk to Congress Avenue bridge just before sunset, and watch the bats take flight. It's a spectacular sight to see.
