Markus Varesvuo - A Winter’s Meal


A winter’s meal

It’s January, daytime is short, and if you’re a Black Grouse (Lyrurus tetrix), it’s best spent feeding, because the night is long; conditions can be extreme and survival requires energy. Luckily, food for a Black Grouse is abundant and ubiquitous: buds and branch tips. There’s a technique to snap the branch tips off that involves a sharp and quick twist of the head.
