DougH, we have two kinds of bats here...The Ice Bats-that fly on the hockey field, and the Mexican Free-tails living under the bridge!

Around 750 million Mexican free-tailed bats live under the Congress Avenue bridge in Austin, Texas, the largest urban bat colony in the world.

No one knows how far the bats really go, but it is likely that they cover more than a thousand square miles of surrounding countryside in a single night. During this time they consume an estimated 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects, depending on the number of bats present in the colony.
