Capers en masse

4:th of May
This morning we spend in the forest and as we drive on small gravel tracks, Capercaillies appear a bit here and there. We even see 2 different males displaying with fully spread tails near the road. 
     Even more obliging are the females. Nic get pictures on at least 3 of them. It is just around the end of the leking season and it´s typical to see females down on the gravel roads, eating grit to stimulate the produce of good eggs with a hard shell. At least that´s my theory, correct me if I´m wrong. See more of Nic´s pictures on:
