August 7, 1872 [San Diego Union]: “Curious Bird— Captain Wilcox is the possessor of a curious bird. Its name may be known to ornithologists, but it is not familiar to bird fanciers in this region. The best description we have heard of it is that of an irrepressible cock-fighter, who says it is a cross between an eagle, hawk, and fighting cock. The non-descript hails from the Guadalupe Island.” [Guadalupe Caracara]
