Western Goshawk in Ventura County, California

The following specimens of the Western Goshawk (Astur atricapillus striatulus), all taken in Ventura County, were received by Melvin Phillips, taxidermist at Fillmore, during the winter of 1916-17. Male, taken by P. W. Robinson at Nordhoff, October 30, 1916. Male, taken by Earl Cole in Sespe Canyon, November 26, 1916. Female, taken by J. W. Bay in Ojai Valley, January 2, 1917. Female, taken by John Nicholson midway between Santa Paula and Ventura, February 27, 1917. The last mentioned specimen is now in the collection of J. N. Procter, of Ventura. The two females were examined by George Willett, who states that they possess the dark shading of the under parts ascribed to the form striatulus.
