The Feral Pigeons (Columbia livia) or rock pigeon is the ancestor of the domestic pigeon but also of the pigeon of the cities (semi-domestic pigeon). It is a pigeon that weighs between 250 and 300 grams. It can be found on the coasts (Picardy, Normandy and Brittany) and in the mountains (Massif Central, Gorges du Tarn, Southern Alps). It is, however, rare today to see a purebred pigeon of pure stock.
The flight of the Biset is extremely fast, its sight is piercing. On the ground his approach is lively and well assured. This animal has migrated to the cities to find accommodation, warmth, food and tranquility.
