Birds by name
Please note that, due to copyright restrictions, these videos do not have sound.
Males gather at dawn in spring and 'lek' to attract females. They are aggressive towards rival males and fighting is common.
The female is smaller than the male, brown and has a heavily barred black body. She has paler underparts and also a reddish patch on the breast.
