Whenever I visit White Rock Lake I always enjoying stopping by to see how the resident Monk Parakeet colony is making out. On this warm January afternoon I found the colony bustling with activity. Raucous parakeets were busy shoring up their nests so that they would be ready for any upcoming winter weather. The bright green birds were coming and going with a regular frequency, finding and then delivering the twigs used in the maintenance of their nests.
