Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 21Jan2021

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.
Two amphibian species were observed, Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 0) and American Bullfrog (CI = 0).
There had been 0.25 inches of rain at the USGS gauge at Berry Creek at Airport Road (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/tx/nwis/uv/?site_no=08105095&PARAmeter_cd=00045) over the previous two days before monitoring. There was a larger puddle at the middle slough springhead than last month, the slough by the playground had water in it, and the water level in the main ponds was average. We heard a Barred Owl calling several times after dark from the other side of Berry Creek.
The monitoring period was 18:00 - 19:15.
Participants were Kathy and Amy.
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:
Air temperature = 60.6 deg F
Water temperature = 66 deg F
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = below average at springhead, average at main ponds
Relative humidity = 65 %
