Austin Bats @ Congress Avenue Bridge

Plan your trip to see America's most famous bats! The best predictor of spectacular, early emergences is hot, dry weather. Great viewing opportunities are most likely during spring migration from mid-March to mid-April and as bat pups are learning to fly in late July, continuing through August. Emergences will occur every night during spring and summer, normally within 30 minutes of sundown, before in hot, dry weather, but up to 40 minutes after in cooler, damp weather.
