A portion of the bike trail at the southwest end of White Rock Lake follows the long straight path once occupied by train tracks. While traveling on this section of trail you might notice some unusual bird calls. That will be your first indication that you have come across the lake’s resident population of Monk Parakeets.
Monk Parakeets are an invasive species, and the lake’s colony is reported to be the descendants of escaped pets. It would seem that the parakeets are doing very well in our area, and that this is just one colony of several in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
