In recent years Lakeland Fanns, located a few miles south of Marion in the Blackbelt country of south-central Alabama, has become somewhat of a refuge for smaU numbers of wintering waterfowl.
Protection, a nucleus of stocked Cananda Geese, numerous fann ponds, and a food supply of green winter wheat fields, has attracted a growing number of wild Can ad as, a small population of Snow Geese and a scattering of ducks. Periodically, some of the lakes are drained to harvest catfish and the resultant mudflats can at times be productive for shorebirds.
