Re: Nevada County Species List and Database Gaps

I went for a short hike with my family in Grass Valley a few weeks back and figured i could find a few Nevada Co. critters in the process.... Think i was a bit early as i only found a couple tree frogs. :|

I doubt there is Kings on Alcatraz, but Im going to take a good look around Angel Island next month, there are a few spots worth inspecting closer. I have seen several of the usual suspects lizard and salamander wise there.
I cant remember if kings were documted on that island or not though.
