Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus) in the Snow

Another shot of a red grouse in the snow from a couple of weeks ago.  Unlike the Ptarmigan they do not develop white plumage and are quite easy to spot when the moors are snow covered.

A beautiful bird with wonderful feather detail.  The bright red eye combs are just beginning to form on this individual.
