Two American Avocets. Recurvirostra americana, were collected one mile north of Montgomery, Montgomery Co., Alabama. August 20, 1967. They were in a shallow, one-acre open pond with a small flock of Bluewinged Teal. This is the first record for the upper coastal plain for this western species. There has been only one specimen for the state and it is in the National Museum. The specimens reported here are in the collection of the Alabama Department of Conservation.
