Blowing Wind Cave Wildlife Refuge is the home of numerous species of bats including the endangered gray and Indiana bats.
The cave interior is off limits so the bats are not disturbed but during the summer, at dusk, you can witness the mass flight of half a million bats as they exit the cave for their nightly search for food. It’s an awesome sight.
Besides bat watching you can enjoy hiking, picnicking, and wildlife photography on this 264 acre Alabama vacation site.
