Cassiar Junco Wintering in Southern Santa Barbara County, California

On January 27, 1927, I collected a male Cassiar Junco (Junco hyemalia connectens) in Carpinteria, California. The identification has been confirmed by Mr. H. S. Swarth. The bird was feeding in a walnut orchard in company with a small flock of Sierra Juncos (J. oreganue thurberi). The only published record of this subspecies in California, that I know of, is of a specimen taken by Major Brooks near Colusa, in March, 1923 (Condor, XXV, 1923, p. 176).
