1897 San Clemente Island:Contopus richardsonii—Western Wood Pewee. I saw a single individual of this species in a canon on June 3.

SAN NICOLAS ISLAND

1897 San Nicolas Island:Contopus richardsonii—Western Wood Pewee. I took an adult female on May 20, and an adult male on May 23. The former was shot from its perch on a fence wire, from which it was making frequent sallies after flies. The latter specimen was flying along the beach in front of camp early in the morning and lit on a ledge of rock. Both were undoubtedly migrants...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 CRUZ ISLAND

1907 Santa Cruz Island:Contopus richardsoni richardsoni. Western Wood Pewee. I heard several among the pines in December but did not secure a specimen.” [“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!)”]
