Bohemian Waxwing in Mariposa County

There have been recently added to the bird collection of the California Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, four specimens of the Bohemian Waxwing (Rombycilla garrula), nos. 27561-27564. These birds were secured by Donald D. McLean from a flock containing about sixty Bohemian Waxwings and three Cedar Waxwings, at Smith Creek, six miles east of Coulterville, Mariposa County, California, altitude about 2800 feet, on January 31, 1917. A few days earlier a similar flock was noted. There has been no reported instance of the occurrence of this species within California since 1911, in which year numbers were observed and specimens secured in several places, from Galt, Sacramento County, northward.
