Re: [CALBIRDS] Chuck-Will's-Widow Del Norte County
- Hello All,
There are but two documented records of Chuck-wills-widows for California.
The first was of an injured bird found in Half Moon Bay on 16 October 1986 that
later died in rehabilitation center. The second was of a recent road kill in
Loleta on 4 January 1989. They are now specimens at California Acadamy of
Sciences and at Humboldt State University.

- Wasn't there also another bird in rehab that died, in Ventura County ca. 3 years or so ago??? (I believe that the person who brought it in didn't even know what it was)
