Austin Bat on Congress Ave 1

Congress Avenue - Austin, Texas

This statue of a bat is found on Congress Avenue just across the street from the Austin American Statesman building (which also serves as the parking lot in the evenings for bat watchers). Just a few blocks from the Congress Bridge, this monument honors the mexican free-tailed bat that inhabits the dark recesses of Congress Bridge from late May through September.
