Man-O'-War-Bird in Ventura County, California
Man-o-war-bird ’ in Ventura County, California
On July 29, 1925, in company with Messrs. Parmenter, Varick and Nichols, I watched a Man-o-war-bird (Fregata minor palmerstoni) fly along the beach between Ventura and Hueneme. Previous records for this region are one shot at Hueneme in 1916, and one seen by W. L. Dawson near Santa Barbara on August 12, 1912, and another (or the same bird) seen by Messrs. Dawson and Torrey on August 24, 1912.
