Come and see the unique urban bird life living in the dramatically landscaped Parc des Buttes Chaumont, in north-eastern Paris.
Spring and summers bring such beautiful species as Grey Heron, Rose-Collared Parakeet, European Robin, Grey Wagtail, Goldcrest, Great-Spotted and Green Woodpecker, Blue tit and Song Thrush and many, many more.
Also witness and learn about the birds unique behaviors as we adopt a « slow-birding » approach in the woods, meadows and around the pond and stream that make up this special urban oasis.
