Undoubtedly the most significant feature of Alabama birdlife during the winter of 1968-69 was the large invasion of Evening Grosbeaks-see the winter season report in this issue. These birds had not been reported in Alabama prior to 1956(Imhof, Thomas A., Alabama Birds (1962): 532-33), but since then they have appeared in large numbers every three or four years. This winter record numbers were reported on the Birmingham and Auburn counts and a flock of 30 within the count period at Tuscaloosa.
