To the bat bridge!

If Batman ever hangs out in Austin, it is probably somewhere near the Congress Bridge.  As evening falls, about 1.5 million bats fly out from under the bridge and head off to hunt mosquitoes.  I’m told that each bat captures about 600 mosquitoes and hour, which surely indicates that they are busy hunters!

If you’re in Austin, it’s definitely worth stopping by the bridge to watch.   And for the vast majority of you who are NOT in Austin, this video may be the best I can do for you right now.
