Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 18Apr2022

In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was a small group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month.
Three amphibian species were observed in the main ponds and the ditch in the pecan orchard: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 3), Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 3), and American Bullfrog (CI = 2). Photos were obtained for only American Bullfrog, but audio recordings were obtained for all three species.
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 only 0.83 inches of rain since last month's monitoring session.
The monitoring period was 20:00 - 21:00.
Participants were Kathy, Amy, Christie, and Carolyn.
Environmental conditions at the main ponds at sunset:
Air temperature = 66.7 deg F
Water temperature = 76.1 deg F
Sky = no/few clouds
Water level = below average
Relative humidity = 41 %
