A first Alabama breeding record of the endangered Wood Stork was established. The first summer records of Red-throated Loon and Bell’s Vireo in Alabama came from Mobile and Monroe counties, respectively. A record high summer count of Killdeer in Alabama was made in Colbert County, and a record early arrival date for Baird’s Sandpiper came from the same county. ARose-breasted Grosbeak lingered in Lauderdale County until June I to set a late departure date for Alabama. Summer Bird Count efforts in Fayette and Monroe counties produced many interesting records.
