I had this same question a while back, and found nothing working in OS X 
(only classic), so...

I've been working on a Cocoa bibliography manager for my own use.
I could release it, if it looked like a lot of people would like it.

A short description:
It reads & writes (most) BibTeX .bib files and plays within the format
Allows easy browsing of annotations (and nifty typeset preview)
Searches for text in any entry
Quick search helps find the right document in long databases
Drag n' Drop (and Copy/Paste) citations into TeX documents

Many more features are planned, such as printing with annotations, etc.

The sequence that I had in mind (and works *now*) is:
1 - find a paper on citeseer or researcher's web page
2 - drag bibtex entry into my application
3 - add a note
4 - drag citation into tex paper.

Let me know if this is what you had in mind.
