Every summer, Mexican freetail bats migrate north to bear their young.  A favorite roosting place is the bridge over the Santa Cruz River on Ina Road, just over the hill.  If you go close to dusk and wait by the guardrails, the sky will soon fill with bats emerging for their nightly hunt for food.  Bats eat insects, including mosquitoes.
