In this instance the timely arrival of Willett and H. Linton in a small boat, saved the day, and incidentally the fishing smack.

An abundant resident at the time of both my visits: the breeding season was well advanced, many nests being found which contained large young. The nests were nearly always built in oaks or cottonwoods in narrow canyons where there was water. Only once did I find this rule violated, in this instance the bird building its nest in a sumac which grew in a sandy wash. The basis of the nest was, with a few exceptions, sheeps’ wool. This was Mar., 1908 SPRING NOTES FROM SANTA CATALINA ISLAND 67 fastened to the twig by the aid of spider-web, the same substance being used to adhere green moss to the outside.

1907 Santa Cruz Island:Selasphorus alleni. Allen Hummingbird. Several seen. An adult male was secured November 24.” [“At 11:30 p.m., November 19, 1907, my father (H. Linton), Mr. George Willett, and myself left San Pedro harbor in a dilapidated fishing smack and in company with a crawfisherman, one “Cold-foot” Jorgensen. We arrived off the south end of Santa Cruz Island at 10:30 the following day during a stiff norwester. For various reasons we were unable to make camp until the 22nd. It may not be amiss to state here that twice during the blow we were nearly wrecked: once while at anchor in Potatoe Harbor, a broken anchor allowing the boat to drift within the breaker line and nearly onto the rocks. In this instance the timely arrival of Willett and H. Linton in a small boat, saved the day, and incidentally the fishing smack. At another time (the engine having broken down) we were blown nearly onto the rocks of Anacapa Island; but with father at the wheel and Willett and I on the “sheet” we managed to hold her off. I mention the foregoing, and the many sleepless nights spent on the rocky shores, “running” the surf several times each day (with attendant duckings), etc., merely as a warning to those who seem inclined to believe a field naturalist’s life “strewn with roses”. (Its ’ generally strewn with cacti!)”]
