The Frio Bat Cave In South Texas

18 million Mexican Free-tailed bats stream out in flight each night from the Frio cave in southern Texas. Great Horned Owls await them and so do Red-tailed and Swainson’s Hawks.

The hawks fly to the stream of bats and once at the stream flip and put their talons in the stream and grab a bat and fly back to a roost and eat the bat…I watched the raptors do this into the dark.
