VTT 1 Les Bois de Carrasquet à Sargaillouse

Wood pigeons are the most common of European pigeons. Settled in France, they enjoy the mild and temperate climate of the south-west. They live at medium altitude, in forests surrounded by croplands but also in town, mixed in with pigeons and magpies in green spaces. Well-known for their massive migration in autumn, they are the birds from the north of Europe, which fleeing the harsh winter, go on to Spain. For a few years now, the migration corridor has shrunk and moved towards the Bay of Biscay. This change in behavior raises questions among hunters who for all time have extensively hunted this bird throughout the Pyrenean mountains.
