Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 17Jun2023

In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was a small group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month.
Four amphibian species were observed in the main ponds and sloughs: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 3), Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 3), American Bullfrog (CI = 2), and Green Treefrog (CI = 3). Photos were obtained for two species, and recordings were obtained for all four species.
According to the USGS gauge station at Berry Creek at Airport Road near Georgetown, TX (, there had been 0.4 inches of rain 24 days before monitoring. The ponds and sloughs were full, and water was running over the main dam. We saw a White-tailed Deer drinking from the pond at sunset, and saw two young Nutria eating at the edge of the pond after sunset.
The monitoring period was 20:35 - 21:50.
Participants were Kathy, Christie, and Amy.
Environmental conditions at the main ponds at sunset:
Air temperature = 85.5 deg F
Water temperature = 80.4 deg F
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = average
Relative humidity = 56 %
