Bevy of Bats
You can call your vessel a Bat Mobile, if you row beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge at dusk on a summer night: that’s when nearly two million Mexican free-tailed bats emerge from their urban colony to feed on the insects of Austin
. In your craft, you’ll be awed by the spectacle in the sky from April to October when the bats visit town. All year long, you can enjoy nearby Lake Lady Bird (seen here), an 11-mile reservoir in the middle of downtown.
