Ancient Murrelet at San Clemente
Ancient Murrelet at San Clemente.
During December, 1908, I secured several Ancient Murrelets (Synthliboramphus antiquus) about San Clemente Island. Oftentimes while "working" the coasts, I observed the remains of Ancient Murrelets and Cassin Auklets (Ptychorampus aleuticus) among the other victims of the storms. The southern (winter) range of Synthliboramphus antiquus includes the entire group of Santa Barbara Islands.
