Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) first for Alabama

Published in 1993

On 15 November 1992 Martha and I received a telephone call from Ernie and Carol Blair of Huntsville, notifying us of a hummingbird at the residence of Frank Brown of 6304 Trailwood Drive in Huntsville. The call was in response to our request to be notified of any hummingbird seen in Alabama after IS November. This date generally assures that any hummingbird still present will be some species other than a Ruby-throated (Archilochus colubris), which by this time should be on their wintering grounds in Central America.
