City Nature Challenge (2022) - San Francisco Bay Area

I visited these 4 places for the City Nature Challenge 2022:
Day 1 (29-Apr-2022, 5.5 hrs): Sierra Azul OSP, Limekiln & Priest Rock Trails
This was one of the best days ever! I've never seen so many species and I even spotted some new ones (for me).

Day 2 (29-Apr-2022, 2 hrs): Sunnyvale Baylands
Took a short walk around the hill and paths by the water treatment plant to get some photos of sea birds. Saw 9 turtles sunning themselves - all native. (My feet were hurting from yesterday's 5.5 hr. hike.)

Day 3 (01-May-2022, 4 hrs): Joseph D. Grant County Park, Manzanita Trail to unnamed pond
Walked with my granddaughter Faith. She's great at spotting small things. She caught a water snake, newt babies, a tree frog, and tadpoles with her net (catch & release). It was a blast!

Day 4 (02-May-2022, 2 hrs): Ulistac Natural Area
It was an overcast windy morning. Not ideal conditions for photographing birds, plants & bugs.
