The weather was overcast and extremely windy, it was also cold outside. A group of Northern Shovelers were spotted in one of the ponds closest to the main road. They were identified through binoculars on their beak shape, as well as the copper colored spot in the middle of their otherwise white breast. The group was mixed with males and females, however some of the males had red heads instead of green so it could have been two separate duck species that were grouped together. Three of the ducks were running across the water, in what appeared to be chasing each other. This could have been behavior that the males exhibit to show dominance over the mixed group.
An eastern hog nose snake was observed along the main paved road behind Brackenridge Field Laboratory's main buildings. It was identified as the eastern hog nose snake by the length of the snake relative to diameter and the distinctive upturned nose.
A large gulf coast road was found in leaf litter near the main paved road at BFL. It was identified as the gulf coast road based of the large cranial ridges and white stripe down the back. The road was approximately five and a half inches long.
