An Unusual Occurrence of the Saw-whet Owl.-On February 3, 1950, we collected an adult female Saw-whet Owl (degolius ncadicus) . The bird was found sleeping in the afternoon in an exposed outer branch of a tamarisk tree (Tamarir gal&a) near the southeast edge of the Salton Sea north of Westmorland, Imperial County, California, at an elevation of 200 feet below sea level. This is the first record for the Imperial Valley. The specimen is now no. 1238 in the Cardiff Collection.- EUGENE E. CARDIFF and BRUCE E. CARDIFP, Bloomington, California, July 26, 1950.
