Hazel Grouse (Tetrastes bonasia)

I have been trying to get a decent picture of a Hazel Grouse for a long time and using my new Panasonic Lumix TZ40 which I am currently trying out, I feel that I have succeeded!!

This particular bird was feeding on buds in a Birch tree.  This is a relatively small grouse at 35–39 centimetres (14–15 in) in length.

The calls of Hazel Grouse remind me of Treecreeper.  You can hear Hazel Grouse calls here,
