Birds by name
Please note that, due to copyright restrictions, these videos do not have sound.
Notice the fanned and sharply cocked tail displaying white undertail feathers, the lyre-shaped outer tail-feathers spread wide and training backwards away from the body, the white shoulder spot revealed by a slight drooping of the wings, and the red combs above the eyes fully distended.
Female black grouse are much less eyecatching than the males, but are still attractively barred.
