Bat Bridge-Austin TX

Timeline

I used to live in Austin. Stand over the bridge or nearby (at a restauraunt or cafe) near dusk. It is incredible to watch. Something that shouldn't be missed if you're in town. Some 1.5 million bats in a good year.

Although I have to say that the private-entrance only (Bat Conservation Int'l has access) to Bracken cave, which is also in the area, with some 20 million bats, was so much more amazing. There are member nights if you're interested.

It sounds scary. :help:


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Thanks guys!

We're going to Austin next week, and we're planning on going. If anyone knows of the best places to park, or any other helpful hints, I'd love a PM. We've been to Austin a couple of times but really don't know it at all.

The bat bridge is amazing!!!! Not scary at all. The only problem was...waiting. I thought the sun had long gone down before they emerged. But it was incredible to see them and wonder how the all fit inside the bridge. A must for a visit to Austin!wow.gif
