Group Description

We want to build a photographic collection to help amateur wildlife-watchers locate, identify, and appreciate the wildlife of the San Francisco Bay Area. The goal is to supplement the information found at by providing selected photographs of all the species found in this region.

Photographs are selected based on photographic quality, good depiction of a particular species and illustration of behavior. Some exceptions will be made for unusual species. Mostly we include only one photograph per species except where different views illustrate something e.g. male and female, adult and juvenile, wings open and closed, dorsal and ventral, etc.

We will only include photographs that have been taken in the extended Bay Area including some locations like Monterey which are within range for day trips.

You can search the pool using tags or text searches. Here are some links to frequently used groups:
