Birders in our area had plenty of excitement last fall and winter. Birding was generally good through the autumn migration, and winter birding inland was excellent. Many rarities were discovered, including two first and two second Alabama records. Mild temperatures prevailed through most of the period, and precipitation was slightly lower than expected, An unusual event was the seven inches of snow that fell at Birmingham 18 January! Cold fronts passed through this autunm on 19 and 25 September; 5, 15, and 20 October; and 1,18,20-21, and 23 November.
