The Austin Bats at Congress Avenue Bridge is one of the most unique and fascinating attractions in Austin, Texas. Home to the largest urban bat colony in North America, it’s estimated that over 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats reside beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge from March to November.

Every evening at sunset, spectators gather along the bridge and nearby areas to witness the spectacular emergence of the bats as they venture out to hunt for insects. This natural phenomenon is a captivating sight, and it’s not uncommon to see a dense cloud of bats swirling in the evening sky.
