Emergence

I had the great good fortune to witness, several times, the bat emergence at Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge. Over a million Mexican free-tailed bats roost under the bridge from late spring to early fall. late summer emergences can be very remarkable, as this one in August 2005 was.

It was, is, a pleasure to help play a very tiny part in helping people appreciate the crucial role bats play in maintaining healthy ecosystems.
