Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 25Jun2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was no group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month. However, three people wearing face masks checked on the amphibians while staying at least six feet apart from each other at all times.
Five amphibian species were observed: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (Call Index = 1), Gulf Coast Toad (CI = 0), Green Tree Frog (CI = 3), American Bullfrog (CI = 1), and Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 3). Photos and/or sound recordings were obtained for all species except American Bullfrog.
There was still no flow to the pond from the middle slough springhead, and although there had been about an inch of rain received two days before monitoring, there seemed to be less water there than last month. However, the water level in the main ponds was average.
The monitoring period was 20:30 - 22:00.
Participants were Kathy, Christie, and Dale (welcome !).
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:

  • Air temperature = 79.2 deg F
  • Water temperature = 77.1 deg F
  • Sky = no/few clouds
  • Water level = much below average
  • Relative humidity = 56 %
