Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 20Apr2019

We had a great spring night - five amphibian species were observed in various locations within the park, and we got photos and/or recordings for all of them !

  • Blanchard's Cricket Frogs (ultimately at CI = 3) at the middle slough springhead (by the bird blind) and main pond
  • A Rio Grande Leopard Frog (CI = 1) near the footbridge
  • Three American Bullfrogs (CI = 1) in the main pond
  • Three Gulf Coast Toads (CI = 1) near the footbridge and main pond's fishing deck
  • Several Western Narrow-mouthed Toads (formerly known as Great Plains Narrow-mouthed Toads, CI = 1) in a shallow, flooded, grassy area at the base of the hill below the parking lot

Everyone contributed to identifying the calls and catching them - thank you !!
The monitoring period was 20:00 - 21:30.
Participants were Kathy, Christie, Leia, Diane, Mike & Amy, Lynne, and Larry & Marek (aka, the bullfrog whisperer).

  • Air temperature = 68.7 deg F
  • Water temperature = 70 deg F
  • Sky = No/few clouds
