Robert F. Henry Lock and Dam

The Robert F Henry Lock and Dam on the Alabama River in northern Lowndes County is an essential element of any birding trip that incorporates the area between Montgomery and Selma. The habitat features make the site important: there are extensive grassy meadows – old field habitat – that terminate in weedy slopes that extend to the banks of the Alabama River. The dam impounds deep water to the east and rocky shoals below the spillway. There is a copse of mature shade trees bisected by a jeep trail. The mix of habitats produces an enviable list of birds virtually all year.
