Mexican Black Hawk in California

On the 26th of November, 1906, I secured a male Urubitinga anthracina within the city limits of National City, San Diego County, California. The hawk was making a second attempt to capture a tame duck on the shore of a pond about twenty-five yards from the Wallace racing stables of this city, and was shot by one of the stable hands, I being present at the time.

This is the third of this species killed in this locality during 1905-06.
