ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD (Calypte anna )

ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD (Calypte anna )

1898 Santa Cruz Island: “...Some groves of eucalyptus trees planted further up the valley were the dwelling place of quite a number of birds common to the mainland, such as Allen's Hummingbird (Selasphorus alleni), Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna), Lawrence's Goldfinch (Spinus lawrenci), Arkansas Goldfinch (Spinus psaltria), Western Chipping Sparrow (Spizella socialis arizonae), Western Flycatcher [which has been separated into a new species by Oberholser in the Auk, Vol. XIV, No. 3, July, 1897, and designated as Empidonax insulicola. This has not yet been allowed by the A. 0. U. Committee. It was commonly heard on the island, but during my stay was very shy and seldom seen]... Following is a list of birds observed during my stay:- Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna )...”
Mailliard, Jos., Spring Notes on the Birds of Santa Cruz Island, Cal., April,1898 The Condor 1(1):41-45, April 1899

1905-1906 Santa Catalina Island:Calypte anna. Anna Hummingbird. A few Anna Hummingbirds were seen, but they were not nearly so plentiful as Selasphorus.” [“These notes are the result of two brief sojourns on Santa Catalina Island in the month of April, eight days being spent in 1905, and five in 1906. Fortunately both trips were made after wet seasons; the hills were carpeted with grass, flowers and insects were abundant.”]
Richardson, Charles H., Jr. Spring Notes from Santa Catalina Island The Condor 10(2):65-68, March 1908

1907 Santa Cruz Island:Calypte anna. Anna Hummingbird. Fairly common; several preserved.” [“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!)”]
Linton, C. B. Notes from Santa Cruz Island] The Condor 10(3):124-129, May 1908

1927 Santa Rosa Island:Calypte anna . Anna Hummingbird. DeGroot saw one bird close enough to make for positive attention.” [“Through the generosity of Mr. Silsby M. Spalding who placed at our disposal his splendid cruiser Padariva I the writer accompanied by H. W. Carriger, Dudley DeGroot and 0. W. Howard was enabled to spend the period from March 25 to April 5, 1927, inclusive, among the Channel Islands off the coast of southern California.”]
