Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 15Apr2023

In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was a small group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month.
Five amphibian species were observed in the main ponds, sloughs, and ditch in the pecan orchard: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 2), Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 3), Gulf Coast Toad (CI = 3), American Bullfrog (CI = 1), and Green Treefrog (CI = 2).
According to the USGS gauge station at Berry Creek at Airport Road near Georgetown, TX (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/monitoring-location/08105095/#parameterCode=00065&period=P7D), there had been 1.9 inches of rain in the last 10 days. The ponds and sloughs were full, and water was running over the main dam. We heard a Barred Owl after sunset.
The monitoring period was 20:00 - 21:15.
Participants were Kathy, Christie, Carolyn, and Amy.
Environmental conditions at the main ponds at sunset:
Air temperature = 69.3 deg F
Water temperature = 71.0 deg F
Sky = no/few clouds
Water level = average
Relative humidity = 32 %
