Marvel at Wildlife at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

With gardens full of lush plants and vibrant flowers, it's no wonder that the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is one of the city's premier spots to explore nature. 

It's a popular bird watching destination, and the summer months draw dozens of species including four that only visit during this time of year:

Wood Stork

Wood storks are large wading birds, with football-shaped bodies, long legs, and curved bills. They're all white except for their black flight and tail feathers. Wood storks fly with their neck and legs outstretched. Though when perched, they tend to draw their necks in giving them a humpbacked appearance.

Roseate Spoonbill

Large and pink, roseate spoonbills have long bills that flatten into a spoon. They typically roost and nest in groups with egrets, herons, and ibises. When foraging, rosette spoonbills move their head from side to side with their bill under water. These birds are usually silent, though at times, they make low grunting sounds when startled. 

White-faced Ibis

White-faced ibises are maroon birds with long, curved bills. Breeding adults have reddish legs and a bare patch of pink skin in front of their eyes that's bordered in white. They explore the western states during the warmer months and forage in shallow water where they probe soft mud for food. 

White Ibis

With white feathers and reddish-pink legs, white ibises are easy to identify. They forage in groups and walk slowly with their heads down to probe the muddy surface for crustaceans. When in flight, these birds hold their necks and legs straight out and make a harsh, nasal honk call. 

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is just one of the bird watching destinations near Mosaic Dallas. If you would like to call our vibrant community home, please contact our leasing staff. They will gladly show firsthand all we have to offer.
