Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 17Dec2022

In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was a small group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month.
One amphibian species was observed in the main ponds and the ditch in the pecan orchard (Rio Grande Leopard Frog at CI = 1) - several recordings were collected, but no photos were obtained. We also heard a Great Horned Owl call a couple of times at sunset.
According to the USGS gauge station at Berry Creek at Airport Road near Georgetown, TX (, there had been 0.13 inches of rain three days before monitoring. It was nice to see the sloughs and ponds full of clear water.
The monitoring period was 17:30 - 18:30.
Participants were Kathy, Carolyn, and Christie.
Environmental conditions at the main ponds at sunset:
Air temperature = 44.1 deg F
Water temperature = 58.5 deg F
Sky = no/few clouds
Water level = average
Relative humidity = 36 %
