The forest of The University of
the South is dominated by oaks and
hickories; as such, it is a forest of nut-producing trees. Here, too, there is
plenty ofwildlife: nuts and acorns are
a food source for many birds, such as
wild turkeys, ruffed grouse, bluejays, woodpeckers, and grackles. In addition, mammals, including raccoons, deer, mice, and the ubiquitous gray squirrels, count them as an important part of their diet.
