Whether a bat enthusiast or not, many just love to take in an evening view of bats in Austin as one of the many local Austin, Texas attractions.
Simply put, people are batty for Austin’s world-renowned Mexico free-tailed bats and their night 2-mile high flight patterns, and feeding frenzy of Austin insects. These bats are the fastest mammals in the world at 99 mph.
Thanks to Lady Bird Lake, formerly Town Lake, circa 1980 renovations making a home for the bats in Austin, Texas, the South Congress Bridge, also known as the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge, bats put on a nightly spectacular show of dynamic aerial flight typically lasting 45 to 60 minutes long.
Whether attending the Austin Bat Festival, a visiting tourist, or a Keep Austin Weird local, bats in Austin under the South Congress Bridge entertain and amaze all walks of life, from the youngest to the oldest.
