Hog Wallow Ponds heron colony

Published in 1997

The two Hog Wallow Ponds are located about two miles (3.33 km) south of Tuskegee, Macon Co., Alabama, just east of U.S. 29, at T 16 N, R 24 E, Sec. 9, on the Tuskegee Quadrangle. I first visited a Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea) colony on one of the ponds in 1952. At the time they were surrounded by pasture. Presently, they are surrounded by loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) plantations and with patches of tag alder (Alnus serrulata) at the inlet ends.
