SAN CLEMENTE ISLAND

1897 San Clemente Island:... “Turdus aonalaschkae—Dwarf Hermit Thrush. At the time of my first visit, this bird was common along the canons among the cherry bushes. It was probably only a winter visitant. One specimen was taken...The party consisted of Joseph Grinnell, who had immediate charge of the expedition, and gave special attention to the ornithology and entomology of the islands; Horace Gaylord, who collected mammals; and Harry Gaylord and James Brittan [Britton] who devoted their time to archaeology. The party left San Pedro harbor May 11 in a large fishing schooner... [returning June 9, 1897]”

SANTA CATALINA ISLAND

1905-1906 Santa Catalina Island:Hylocichla guttata nana. Dwarf Hermit Thrush. A very few individuals of this species were seen in the brush tangles in the canyons. One was heard singing its exquisite song.” [“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


1923 Santa Catalina Island:Hylocichia guttata, subsps. Of 10 hermit thrushes taken on Santa Catalina Island in January 1920, 9 proved to be Hylocichia guttata nanus and one Hylocichia guttata guttata. By contrast, of 7 birds taken during March, 1920, on Santa Cruz Island, 6 are referable to guttata, while only one is referable to nanus. ”

SANTA CRUZ ISLAND

1907 Santa Cruz Island:Hylocichla guttata nana. Dwarf Hermit Thrush. Common.” [“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!)”]

SANTA ROSA ISLAND

1927 Santa Rosa Island:Hylocichia guttata guttata. Alaska Hermit Thrush. Quite common in the canyon bottoms and frequently seen as we looked for the nests of the Dusky Warbler.” [“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.”]
