Capercaillie. This bird is a local celebrity, as it is a bit out of season to play now.

I first went on a ski trip without my camera as I did not think the bird was there anymore (it was not there last weekend when I had a camera with me), but when it appeared I had to go home and get a camera to take pictures. An extra 10-12 km ski trip. Worth it!

You can se more images of the capercaillie here.
