During the summer of 1952, as I was just getting acquainted with Alabama, my Comparative Anatomy student, Tom Yancey, asked me if I was interested in seeing a Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea) nesting colony. Naturally I was, so he took me to the Hog Wallow Ponds, just south of Tuskegee, in Macon County. There, to my amazement, was a group of Little Blue Herons nesting in alders in the shallow upper end of one pond. My research with wading birds began at that moment (Dusi 1958).
