Bird in GTA IV (Pigeon)

Birds are one of the few animals in the GTA series, appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. In GTA V, birds that are in the air can be shot down, and their carcass can be viewed on the surface they land on.

Spawning Points

GTA San Andreas

Different birds spawn everywhere around San Andreas.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • 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.



  • 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.
