June 19, 2010 - Eocene Fossils, Covington Co, AL

This month the group went to a shallow river in Covington Co, AL we haven't visited for a long time.  Our memory of this site is that the pickings were better in years past.  It took a while to find fossils.  We don't dig, as the landowner has requested "no digging", but most of our honey holes were empty, possibly from the recent rainy seasons or over-collecting by commercial coll
