ANACAPA ISLAND

1927 Anacapa Island:Buteo borealis calurus. Western Red-tail. A pair of these hawks were seen by all of us as they circled high over the crest of a cliff, and later they were seen building a nest on a steep rocky slope on the south side of the main island.” [“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.”]
Pemberton, J. R. Additions to the known avifauna of the Santa Barbara Islands The Condor 30(2):144-148, March-April 1928



SAN CLEMENTE ISLAND

1907 San Clemente Island:Buteo borealis calurus. Western Red-tail. Several pairs were nesting on the Island.” [“Visits were made to Clemente in January, February, March, April and October, 1907.”]
Linton, C. B. Notes from San Clemente Island The Condor 10:82-86, March 1908


1984 San Clemente Island: RED-TAILED HAWK (Buteo jamaicensi) “Rare throughout the year, two breeding occurrences: Linton (1908) noted that several pairs were nesting on the Island in 1907, but gave no details; an adult was observed feeding a recently fledged immature bird (determined by plumage) in Cave Canyon 28 Jun 1980 (HF).” Recovery Plan for the endangered and threatened species of the California Channel Islands published by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Portland, Oregon 1984.



SANTA CATALINA ISLAND

1905-1906 Santa Catalina Island:Buteo borealis calurus. Western Red-tail. Common about the hillsides, especially where ground squirrels are abundant. ” [“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



SANTA CRUZ ISLAND

1898 Santa Cruz Island: “...Following is a list of birds observed during my stay:- *Western Redtail (Buteo borealis calurus )... The species marked with an asterisk were seen but not taken...”
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:Buteo borealis calurus. Western Red-tail. Several seen.” [“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!)”]
