Red Grouse

With my fourth trip of the year to Scotland coming up in little over a month, I'm still working my way through pictures from the last two trips. This Red Grouse was one of many seen around Lochindorb in April. They are considered game birds, and extensively shot, by means of both 'walked up' shooting and 'driven' shooting. For more info on driven shooting, why it's so bad for the Hen Harrier and other species, and to sign a petition calling for it to be banned, follow this link to Mark Avery's blog.
