Male black grouse at lek

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.
