SAN CLEMENTE ISLAND

1897 San Clemente Island:Mimus polyglottos—Mockingburd. Not uncommon among the cactus patches on the higher mesas, but very shy. Two adult males were secured; these agree in being dorsally lighter than mainland specimens. No nests were discovered, but fully-fledged juveniles were seen on June 3...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]”
Grinnell, Joseph The Islands of Santa Barbara, San Nicolas and San Clemente, in the Spring of 1897 Pasadena Academy of Sciences Publication No. 1, August, 1897 (26 pages).


1907 San Clemente Island:Mimus polyglottos leucopterus. Western Mockingbird. Fairly common. On the low cacti-covered mesas back of Smugglers’ Cove, April 2, I found several unfinished nests in the cacti and holly bushes. The feathers of the foreheads and skins of several specimens were stained by the juice of the cactus apples. The Mockingbirds of the islands have been reported by some collectors as being somewhat different from M. $. leucopterus. This theory we have clearly disproved, the specimens taken being identical with mainland specimens, as far as discernible by us.” [“Visits were made to Clemente in January, February, March, April and October, 1907.”]

SANTA CATALINA ISLAND

1905-1906 Santa Catalina Island:Mimus polyglottos leucopterus. Western Mockingbird. Abundant everywhere and in full song. I was very much surprised to hear this bird give a perfect imitation of the cry of the Western Gull. ” [“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.”]

SANTA CRUZ ISLAND

1898 Santa Cruz Island: “...Following is a list of birds observed during my stay:- Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos ); ...”
Mailliard, Jos., Spring Notes on the Birds of Santa Cruz Island, Cal., April,1898 The Condor 1(1):41-45, April 1899


1907 Santa Cruz Island:Mimus polyglottos leucopterus. Western Mockingbird. Fairly 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:Mimus polyglottos leucopterus Western Mockingbird. A common bird. Carriger took a set of two eggs on April 2.” [“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.”]
