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.

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
