Black grouse (Tetrao tetrix subsp. britannicus)

Observation - Black grouse (Tetrao tetrix subsp. britannicus). Description: Another poor photo in the snow. These birds seem to stick very closely to traditional territories and I have often seen them before in this location. Taken through open car window ... and the bird flew off as soon as it heard the camera shutter.
