    Did you take that pic? Too funny. It is like he is saying " what are you looking at". Ballsy bird.

    Capercaillie says the transfer program, but in Norway we call it Tiur, our largest forest bird. Yes, it may come after you in the breeding season, when his brain is boiled up so to say. 

    No did not take that picture myself. Another  member on a norwegian hunt forum did.

    Prey species have eyes set to the sides of the head for great "all-around" awareness.  That comes at the cost of reduced binocular vision capability, which means depth perception and distance estimation is problematic.  To account for this reduction birds (and most other prey species with side-mounted eyes) will cock their heads, shift their stance slightly, and bob in place… all to "map" their surroundings and provide an alternative to the kind of binocular vision we have.  I'd say that about the time that photo was taken that beautiful boy was sizing up the strange creature in front of him and deciding if this was a fight-or-flight moment.

    Kayaker, a lot Norwegians emigrated to America in the «old days», and started a new life there, and established communities like parts of Minnesota and so on. Nice to hear that it was the other way around regarding your grand parents.👌
