Grouse, black grouse & capercaillie

Magical old forests hide a number of treasured birds. In the spring you can experience on of nature’s most fantastic performances, when the capercaillie and the black grouse play their love songs.

Every one should once in their life have had the opportunity to see the cocks put on a real display as they dance graciously around like ballet dancers.

Jämtland has plenty of black grouse and capercaillie, as well as grouse, which in its white winter coat is almost invisible in the mountainous terrain. Bird watchers who haven’t yet experienced the mountains will have plenty of opportunities to put a tick beside these birds and lots of others from their lists of species.
