Bird Watching at the Chateau

Spring is an excellent time for bird watching in Paris – late wintering species are still present, while early migrants are arriving. Trees are leafing up but not fully foliaged so birds are more easily spotted and the weather is more comfortable - not too cold and not too hot.

With many natural parks surrounding Paris the species range can be quite good and the chateau being surrounded by 60 hectares and with two state forests totaling 700+ hectares adjoining and the 3,000ha Senart forest 6.6klms away, bird life is attracted to these areas. The 76,000ha. regional Park Gatinais Francais is 38 klms. away south of the chateau. Here is a list of birds that may be present from time to time.
