While the Evening Grosbeak (Hesperiphona vespertina) is fairly numerous in some years in the Mountain Region of Alabama, it has been recorded very few times on the Upper Coastal Plain. Imhof (Alabama Birds, 1962) mentions only one such record and it is in the spring (April). Mr. R. W. Skinner has informed me that there is a specimen in the State Department of Conservation collection that was taken at Selma. So far as I know it has never been recorded at Montgomery before.
