Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 16Dec2021

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was no group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve this month. However, two people checked on the amphibians while while wearing masks and social distancing. A few raindrops fell out passing clouds a couple of times during monitoring.
Two amphibian species were observed in the middle slough springhead, slough by the playground, and the main ponds: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 1) and American Bullfrog (CI = 0). Photos were obtained for both species.
The puddle at the middle slough springhead was larger than last month but not flowing to the main pond, and the water level was average in the slough by the playground and main ponds. 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 0.37 inches of rain over the last 2.5 weeks.
The monitoring period was 17:30 - 18:45.
Participants were Kathy and Amy.
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:
Air temperature = 69.8 deg F
Water temperature = 69.4 deg F
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = below average at springhead and average at main ponds
Relative humidity = 76 %
