Well, here we go again—more Monk Parakeets, this time on a substation near the intersection of Royal and Marsh in Dallas, Texas.
Once again, I found this colony based on a tip I received from one of my readers. The bright green birds were frequently seen coming and going over her front yard. After identifying the general location, finding a likely electrical substation was not difficult!
When I first arrived there was very little parakeet activity going on. I spotted one intrepid parakeet keeping watch at his communal nest’s front entrance. The many other nests at this site appeared to be unoccupied.
Soon, however, a large group of parakeets returned to the substation and everything was quite raucous from that point on!
