Berry Springs Park and Preserve Herps of Texas report, 16Sep2023

In spite of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, there was a small group outing to Berry Springs Park and Preserve again this month.
One amphibian species was observed next to the dry main pond: Blanchard's Cricket Frog (CI = 0). The sloughs were also dry, and there were only isolated pools in the creek.
According to the USGS gauge station at Berry Creek at Airport Road near Georgetown, TX (, there had been 1.35 inches of rain over the previous two days after no rain for 3.75 months.
We heard a Common Nighthawk and saw several White-tailed Deer and a large Nine-banded Armadillo at sunset, and saw a small mammal (Nutria ?) after sunset.
The monitoring period was 19:35 - 20:35.
Participants were Kathy, Carolyn, and Amy.
Environmental conditions at the main ponds at sunset:
Air temperature = 78.4 deg F
Water temperature = N/A
Sky = mostly cloudy
Water level = much below average
Relative humidity = 59 %
