September 4, 1903: “Some birds of Anacapa Island. On the 4th of September, I was landed from a yacht onto Anacapa Island… Besides the usual sea birds of the region I saw the following: one Bald Eagle (Haliaetus leucocephalus) flying… J[oseph] Grinnell, Pasadena, California.” [Condor 10:3 (130) May-June 1908].


June 14, 1911 [SBMP]: “John Sheridan is supposed to be doing a lonesome turn on Anacapa Island these days, but the latest wireless dispatch from that station is to the effect that he is chasing the eagles from Bay Webster’s patch of lambs, and when not busy at that, has a commission to herd abalones, which are swarming at this season of the year. John was a member of Captain Webster’s party Saturday, but failed to get down to the landing in time for the trip home Sunday evening. He will doubtless be ready for the return trip on the next visit Captain Webster makes to his wave-washed domain.”
