- we have thousands of Mexican Free-tail bats that emerge at dusk from under our bridge. These bats migrate so they are here seasonally. If you are an Indian artifact collector, please check with owner as to any items found. An incentive relative has strewn fake arrowheads all over the ranch. Our apologies. ...moreless
