Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 20Jul2021

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was no group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve this month. However, three people checked on the amphibians.
Four amphibian species were observed in the slough by the playground, the main ponds, and the ditch in the pecan orchard: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 1), Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 3), Green Tree Frog (CI = 3), and American Bullfrog (CI = 1). Photos and/or recordings were obtained for all species except the American Bullfrog.
The puddle at the middle slough springhead was larger than last month (but still no flow to the main ponds), and the water level was average in the slough by the playground and main ponds. It had been cooler and wetter than normal for the past three weeks, and according to the USGS gauge station at Berry Creek at Airport Rd near Georgetown, TX (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/tx/nwis/uv/?site_no=08105095&PARAmeter_cd=00045), there had been 0.11 inches of rain the day before our monitoring.
The monitoring period was 20:30 - 21:45.
Participants were Kathy, Amy, and Olivia (welcome !).
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:
Air temperature = 77.2 deg F
Water temperature = 70.3 deg F
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = below average at springhead, average at main ponds
Relative humidity = 63 %
