Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 21Dec2020

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).
There had been 0.65 inches of rain at the USGS gauge at Berry Creek at Airport Road (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/tx/nwis/uv/?site_no=08105095&PARAmeter_cd=00045) two days before monitoring. There was a small puddle at the middle slough springhead, and the slough by the playground had water in it, but the water level in the main ponds was still low.
The monitoring period was 17:30 - 18:15.
Participants were Kathy and Mike.
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:
Air temperature = 50.4 deg F
Water temperature = 56.4 deg F
Sky = no/few clouds
Water level = below average
Relative humidity = 34 %
