Berry Springs Park and Preserve Herps of Texas report, 18Nov2023

In spite of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, there was a small group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month.
Two amphibian species were observed: Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 3) and Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 1); however, no documentation was collected for the latter. The sloughs and ponds had been slowly refilling since last month when the springs started flowing again, and the water level in the creek was higher than last month, but no water was flowing over the dam yet.
According to the USGS gauge station at Berry Creek at Airport Road near Georgetown, TX (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/monitoring-location/08105095/#parameterCode=00065&period=P7D), there had been 3.35 inches of rain since our last monitoring event 26 days earlier.
The monitoring period was 17:35 - 18:50.
Participants were Kathy, Carolyn, Christie, and Cristy (welcome !).
Environmental conditions at the main ponds at sunset:
Air temperature = 62.8 deg F
Water temperature = 64.5 deg F
Sky = no/few clouds
Water level = below average
Relative humidity = 52 %
