Dallas County Public Lake is a compact site housing a good variety of habitats around a 100-acre lake-emergent lakeside edge, both second-growth and mature woodland and open pine-oak woods. Upon leaving AL-41, look to the left on County Road 6. The cut-over area is full of Eastern Towhees, Eastern Bluebirds, Yellow-breasted Chats, Prairie and Palm Warblers, Blue Grosbeaks, American Goldfinches, Field, Song and White-throated Sparrows, all in the proper season.
Soon after, look to the right at the pond bounded by willows. This pond can host Green Herons, as well as Black-crowned and Yellow-crowned Night-herons. You’ll often find Eastern Phoebes and Yellow Warblers.
The main lake is just ahead. Eastern Bluebirds, Eastern Phoebes, and swallows (mostly Barn) perch on the power wires by the fishing center. Herons and egrets are regularly found around the weedy edges of the lake. (learn more about this Black Belt Birding Trail location here.)
