Are you a little Batty?

If you are, you have an opportunity to hang out with Millions of Bats at the Austin Batfest 2018 August 18th, in lovely downtown Austin, TX.

You can check out the events at Austinbattours.com. Garlic is extra.

Being Home to one of the largest colonies of Mexican Brown Bats, definately Keeps Austin Weird, for sure. The Millions of Bats live under the S. Congress Ave Bridge. The spectacle of the emergence at dusk is amazing, and they are hugely beneficial to the environment, keeping all the creeping, flying, and chewing insects at bay. Think grasshoppers, crickets, millipedes, mosquitos, etc.

I’m grateful for the tons of insects that they eat every evening when they head out to forage.

It’s one of the fun things to do in Austin, if you have the inclination. Seeing them from the water is spectacular.

  1. I love Austin, but the only 3 times I’ve been were to attend SXSW, so we were busy. Next time I come down though, I’ll check these guys out. Are they there all year or do they migrate?
