Another Birdwatching Adventure, the Frio Bat Cave

Another birdwatching adventure that I remember a lot is my trip to the Frio Bat Cave in south Texas.

During the morning myself and 2 birdwatching buddies roamed around the clear, limestone streams near San Antonio, Texas. We saw Black-headed Vireos and Golden-cheeked Warblers in Lost Maple State Park. In the evening we went to an attraction called the Frio Bat Cave, where 8 million Mexican Free-tailed bats fly out each evening to find food…quite a site in its own right. What is interesting about the cave from a birders perspective is that 3 pairs of Red-tailed Hawks, 4 Great-horned Owls (in the cave entrance) snd 2 pairs of Swainson’s Hawks flt into the streaming bats, these predators turn once and grab a bat in their talons and go to a nearby roost to eat the bat, then fly into the bats again and repeat prey on bats.

Myself, and 30 other birdwatchers watched this feat. Truley amazing.
