Abstract

We reported a Bahama Woodstar (Calliphlox evelynae) at Lantana, Florida, 26 August through 13 October 1971 (1972, Amer. Birds 26: 52). At that time, there was reservation by some about the identification. Colored slides taken of the bird at roost were subsequently examined by James Bond and Frank B. Gill, who confirmed the initial identification. This is the first record of this species in the United States.
