Bats and Doppler Weather Radar

Did you know that weather radar systems track bats through the night over Central Texas? When millions of Mexican free-tailed bats leave Bracken Cave and other roosts each summer evening to hunt down insect pests, they appear on radar images as great mobile clouds. The looped map below is in relative real time (2-10 minute lag).

Don't forget to come back and see this activity during emergence times!
