"I don't know if people miss..." Nature Tip by Sunshine64

Nature, Austin: 7 reviews and 6 photos

I don't know if people miss this or not. I wasn't aware of it the first couple of times I visited Austin. But.... Austin is home to the largest colony of bats in North America (at least that is what I was told). At dusk they take off (to feed) from the south side of one of the bridges over the Colorado River downtown. It's pretty amazing to see.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
