    Following a 45 minute indoor presentation on bat natural history, the group will carpool out to the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area to watch the “flyout” of the largest colony of Mexican free-tailed bats in California. The bats emerge in long ribbons as they head out to hunt for insects for the night. To get to the viewing site, the group will caravan through wetlands and rice fields to an area not open to the public.

    The whole experience takes about 3 hours. This is a family friendly event! There is a small amount of walking. Those in wheelchairs or unable to walk may view the bats by car. Please let us know if you have special needs.


    You may reserve up to six spots per family. Adults are $14 each. Children 15 and under are free. All reservations are final. Events begin at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters. Click here for directions to our Headquarters.

    Great to go over the post here. It was so helpful. A few focuses describe here were new for me and it was truly magnificent to experience such useful post. Bats are one of the flying mammals. Even as others can move smoothly, bats are the simply mammals able of continued flight. There are over 1000 special bat species. Bats are of the night. Bats ‘see’ in the dim using a special skill called echolocation. Bats create noises and wait for the sound waves to bounce support off objects; if it doesn’t leap back then they can in safety fly further. They can tell the space of various objects by how fast the sound waves bounce back to them. Most bats feed on insects, even as others eat fruit, fish or even blood! There are 3 species of leech bats which feed exclusively on blood. Vampire bats have small and really sharp teeth which are capable of piercing an animal’s skin without them even noticing. Vampire bats can hold rabies, making their bites potentially unsafe. Several bats are alive by themselves while others live in caves with thousands of other bats. Bats can live for over 20 years. Pteropus bats are the biggest in the world. If you set up a bat house on your assets; they will find it and utilize it. Be a friend to bats, they are main to our ecosystem.
