An Early Seasonal Record for the Allen Hummingbird

On January 29, 1930, the writer observed a male Allen Hummingbird (Selasphorus alleni) at Azusa, California. The next earliest record for this locality was January 31, 1924. In one or two other years the characteristic sound of the bird's flight has been first heard at about this same date. These early migrants are always exceedingly active and make but a brief stay.
