Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 21Nov2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was no group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month. However, two people wearing face masks checked on the amphibians while staying at least six feet apart from each other at all times.
One amphibian species was observed, Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 0), but no photos were obtained.
Due to no significant rain for two months, the area was experiencing moderate drought conditions as per the U.S. Drought Monitor (https://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/). The middle slough springhead was dry, and the slough by the playground was dry all the way up to the main ponds.
The monitoring period was 17:30 - 18:30.
Participants were Kathy and Amy.
Environmental conditions at the main ponds 45 minutes after sunset:
Air temperature = 68 deg F
Water temperature = 65 deg F
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = much below average
Relative humidity = 56 %
