Austin Visit – Watch the bats fly out from under the Congress Avenue bridge
The kids will love this activity from Mollymoo!
Up to 1 million bats call this bridge home during the summer and early fall. Watching them fly at dusk to find dinner is amazing!
August is the best time for watching when mommy bats take babies out for dinner! They eat TONS of insects every single night! Usually 8-8:30 is the best time but calling the Conservation International to check is a great idea 512-327-9721.
