Black Grouse - Tetrao tetrix

En. Black Grouse, Da. Urfugl, Du. Korhoen, Fi. Teeri, Fr. Tétras lyre, Ge. Birkhuhn, It. Fagiano di monte, No. Orrfugl, Sp. Gallo lira, Sw. Orre

Male Black Grouse could only be confused with Capercaillies but they are smaller with forked tails and white wing bars. Females are more like Red Grouse but are bigger, greyer and have narrow white wing bars.
Breeds and winters on heaths and moorland edges usually with birch scrub nearby.

ottima gestione dei bianchi nonostante i forti contrasti.
Gran bello scatto!
(sorry for Averla... magari era occupata a cacciare...)

Ottima foto. Ottima nitidezza ed esposizione!
