Had a few days out in the field trying to get photos of the Black Grouse again. It was good activity on the lek but they males left before photo light. But in the same area, not far away from the lek, an angry Capercaillie male wanted to make shure intruders stayed out of his territory. First time I ever see this specie and what a meeting! We were quite a group of people and without fear he tried to chase each one of his grounds for two full days.

Stay away!

This male had probably been in a nearby lek for a few days because as you can see he is missing some tail feathers. Also he was bleeding from his right wing and had blood around the beak.

It’s a hard time beeing an angry bird, and even this fella needed some food in between 😉

Only 1 meter away from me here!
