Second Record For the Calliope Hummingbird (Stellula Calliope) in Alabama

Published in 1991

On 22 February, 1991, my wife, Martha, and I received a call from Mrs. Martha Reid of Birmingham, informing us of a hummingbird that was wintering at a feeder about 30 miles south of Birmingham in Shelby County. We investigated the location at 5303 Highway 119 South on 23 February, but found neither the hummingbird nor the homeowner at home.
