Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 26Apr2021

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.
Three 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 = 2), Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 3), and Gulf Coast Toad (CI = 1).
The puddle at the middle slough springhead was smaller than last month's puddle, 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 0.3 inches of rain three days before our monitoring.
The monitoring period was 19:45 - 20:45.
Participants were Kathy and Christie.
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:
Air temperature = 74.8 deg F
Water temperature = 68.6 deg F
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = below average at springhead, average at main ponds
Relative humidity = 45 %
