Birding at Morris Arboretum

Wildlife & Birding

Morris Arboretum’s natural areas include wetlands, meadows, and the woodlands along the Wissahickon Creek. These areas provide a great habitat for a wide variety of wildlife and birds year-round. There are resident birds, as well as migrating raptors and warblers to see. Additionally, Out on a Limb gives you a chance to look for birds on the tree canopy: a great vantage point for viewing birds at treetop level.
