  • Pigeons, or "flying rats" appear all over Liberty City. Exterminating them all earns a reward.
  • Seagulls on beaches.
  • Eagles in the trailer. Possibly removed from the final build.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • In-game, the player will find seagulls, crows, cormorants, and a few other species of birds which are usually found while flying aircraft. They mostly appear in brown, black, and grey.
  • In the enhanced version, the player can fly different species of birds via Peyote Plants.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Peyote Plants were added as part of the continuation of the The Diamond Casino & Resort update; they function like the plants in GTA V, transforming the player into a random animal, some of which are bird species.



  • In GTA V, there are some places such as Mount Gordo where Owls can be heard hooting, but they don't physically appear in the game.
