Yes, Bats with wings! Austin, Texas is the proud home of about 1.5 million Mexican fair-tailed bats, all living under The Congress Ave. Bridge. Very thankful to the Bats for their commitment to 'community service', Austin did not always hold their little friends in such high regard. A little PR campaign let it be known that the bats provide a valuable service, consuming thousands of mosquitoes... and suddenly they were very popular!

Check out the picture of them flying out in waves. (Click on the picture for a better view). Millions of tiny bats filling the sky may sound scary, but these are just fruit bats and it is actually very cool to see.
