The collection of an immature Kriders hawk Buteo jamaicensis kriderii Hoopes on November 19, 1957, by the writer was the first specimen for the State of Alabama. The specimen was collected four miles south of Montgomery in Montgomery County, and identified by Dr. John W. Aldrich of the U.S.N.M. Since that time numerous kriderii have been observed in the State from November to as late as April 25, 1959.
