‪Fun experience. It was recommended to come 30 minutes before sunset, but at least for us the bats didn't start flying until after sunset. There's a few viewing spots, the platform, grass on the slope, other side across the bayou, or directly on the bridge, which will probably offer you the best view. The walkway is pretty wide, but you are still close to traffic speeding past, and many of them honking (not sure why). Also, if you pay attention, you might notice a few hawks flying high above waiting to snatch up unsuspecting bats once they come out. We were able to find street parking nearby, and just a few minutes walk from the viewing platform. There were still a few spots left, so not a bad idea to arrive early anyways.‬

‪I don't mind bats, but still I don't go our of my way to see them. We were out driving around and my niece wanted me to see this curiosity, a significant bat colony right in the middle of the city.‬

‪A very cool and unusual experience..especially with our little ones. A short experience though, so I would plan other things to do in that area along with the bat viewing. There are volunteers hanging around there to show you the bats hanging out under the bridge before they come out, and answer any questions you might have.‬

‪Definitely something worth discovering if you are nearby the Buffalo Bayou park. It does have a bit of an odor but the bats are indeed hovering over as you bike ride or walk by. One or two might even fly over you as glide by‬

‪I thought I will get to see the sky filled with bats, but even though there were so many bats, they were not that visible. It still was a good visit, to see so many bats in such a small area. Got to learn a bit about these creatures and their habitat.‬

‪Pretty underwhelming. Very little parking off the highway! I had to cross 6 lanes roads with no sidewalks to get to it. And yes there were bats but they didn’t make noise or fly around. It was like 5pm so I guess they were sleeping.‬

‪Watching the bats emerge from Waugh Bridge surrounded by busy streets, sky scrapers, and Buffalo Bayou Park is a one of a kind wildlife viewing experience. We were there on a Friday night and there were 80-100 people there just to watch the bats emerge. The bats came out a little after sunset, so the best viewing was either along the upper path down at the railing or from the lower path where you could see them highlighted against the still light sky. There was a volunteer from the Houston Volunteer Bat Team there giving an informative talk about the bats, the bridge, bat habits and habitat, etc. According to the volunteer, somebody from their group is there every friday night from April to October giving talks to the public free of charge starting about 1/2 hour before sunset. A few tips from the volunteer:

Do not park at the strip center on the SW corner of Waugh and Allen Parkway. They have been towing cars even for people who were customers of the Subway in that center before walking over to the bridge.

Get there at least 1/2 hour before sunset if you want to hear the talk. The bats will typically come out sometime between 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after sunset.

They will typically come out every night as long as the temperature is above ~45F, but emergences are smaller in the winter and they may come out slower.

If you want to take photos, please do it with your flash turned off as it may hinder the emergence and cause them to slow down and/or stop emerging for a short time.

Keep an eye out for cyclists coming down the upper path especially if you have small kids with you. The cyclists are often moving very fast and don't always slow down for pedestrians on the path.

The emergence may start and stop early on, but will typically last 45 minutes to an hour. So if you see them come out for 5 mins and then stop, don't leave because they are not done. They will start back up and keep going in a few minutes.

The bats will almost always emerge to the east from the bridge, flying down the bayou towards Downtown. When they leave the bayou, they will usually fly into the wind. With a S or SE wind, they will often fly directly towards the AIG building and then go up the face of the building to gain altitude. This is a good area to watch for predators such as red-tailed or swainson's hawks chasing the bats. With a north of northeast wind, the bats will often fly immediately to the NE then turn north and northwest and emergences on those nights can be particularly spectacular because there is very little to prevent seeing the bats well against the skyline.

Also keep an eye out down low and in the trees along the bayou, as there is a group of Yellow Crowned Night Herons that have adapted to preying on the bats as well, and they can be seen sitting in the trees along the flight path trying to grab bats, swooping down to grabs bats off the ground, or even flying up to grab them out of the bridge crevices prior to the emergence.‬

‪Family trip. Something different, glad we were able to see them. Pretty amazing to see that many bats in one place. They came out about 10 minutes after sunset.‬

‪This is an amazing display put on by Mother Nature with thousands of bats flying out from under the bridge just before sunset. We watched it from the water down below via a boat tour, but you can watch from the bridge itself as well. They all follow each other so you can see the trail of bats like a black ribbon trailing across the sky past the skyscrapers. Egrets, hawks, and herons were sitting in the nearby trees and swooped in to grab dinner. It's pretty amazing to see nature at work, and best of all, it's a free activity. Another bonus - they eat tons of mosquitoes every night. I'd recommend going during the warmer months because the bats don't emerge if it's cold.‬

‪It was fun to see the bats but beware it stinks!! I kept the kids in the hill away from the bats. The bats may fall and they warm you not to touch. The 2nd time we stood in the bridge! The birds hover near by the eat the bats.‬
