As part of a long-term study of fall-migration routes, I made two trips to the Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge and environs in September 1983. Jim Stevenson accompanied me on 10-11 September, and we worked separately most of the time. I was alone on 20-21 September. On both trips most of the time was spent looking for woodland migrants. The total field time for the two trips was 25 party hours, all but 1 hour and 40 minutes in Alabama. Data were taken at this time because 20 August-20 September represented a gap in the study of birds in that region by Ortego et ale (1979. Birds of the Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge, 1967-79. Oriole 44: 61-87). For that reason many species that we found had not previously been recorded there in September.
