You can't talk about the Parisian wildlife without mentioning the city's famous pigeons! They have, in fact, become one of the capital's symbolic features. You'll find three species of the bird here, namely the wild city pigeon (the most common), the Trocaz pigeon and the less well-known Stock pigeon. Most of the pigeons you'll see in Paris are of the former variety.
