From mid-March to November around 1.5 million bats emerge from the congress bridge at night and look for food.

The bats eat 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects daily. Viewing the bats has become an interesting traveler attraction when coming to Austin, Texas. The great number of bats can be viewed from around the city while eating, biking or watching from the water. Since there are so many bats they seem to blanket the sky around you.
