I've decided to compile a list of vertebrates occurring in El Cerrito Hillside Natural Area. More specifically, in the smaller northern section of the park that is directly behind my house.

I may expand to the whole Natural Area once my mobility increases.
This afternoon, I took a short walk in the park from 1:15-1:40.
I saw or heard the following birds:
Yellow Rumped Warblers
Red Tailed Hawk
I saw, or sign of the following mammals:
Eastern Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger)
Mule Dear (Odocoileus hemionus)
Voles (Microtus californicus? runways and burrows)
Pocket Gophers (burrows)
Fox (Grey fox? scat)
I didn't see any herps or fish.
Southern Alligator Lizard (Elgaria multicarinata)
Nothing unusual so far. I will add more as I see it.
