Streams of 1.5 million Mexican free-tail bats take flight from underneath the South Congress Avenue Bridge over Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin, Texas.jpg
In Austin, Texas, a colony of Mexican free-tailed bats summers (they winter in Mexico) under the Congress Avenue Bridge ten blocks south of the Texas State Capitol. It is the largest urban colony in North America, with an estimated 1,500,000 bats. Each night they eat 10,000 to 30,000 lb (4,500 to 13,600 kg) of insects.
