The species composition of birds killed on the night of 21-22 October at towers on Grand Bahama Island is presented with a description of the weather patterns preceding and following frontal passage. Gray-cheeked Thrushes and Blackpoll Warblers comprised almost half of all the birds killed. During this period a large number of migrants passed through the Bahamas, including several western vagrants. An annotated list of new and additional records for the West Indies represented by tower-killed birds or observations made during 20-24 October 1966 is included.
