Carlsbad Bat Flight breakfast planned.

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – How about bats with that breakfast?

The 57th annual Bat Flight Breakfast is this Saturday at Carlsbad Caverns.

You can sit in the amphitheater to watch the return of the Brazilian free-tailed bats to the cave.

Plan to get up early the bats like to be inside by 6:30 am, so be there by 5:00 a.m.

The bat flight breakfast began in 1957 as a way to encourage visitors to see the bat’s in action as you know they are nocturnal.

While there may be fewer bats this year because of the ongoing drought, there are still expected to be thousands. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
