We came across a Ptarmigan family, parents with five chicks. Their camouflage colours in summer match the colours of nature so they are not too easily spotted. The chicks were quite small, perhaps a week old but already able the fly. Naturally the parents were busy trying to distract us, especially the mother though.
Usually the fathers leave the family shortly after the chicks hatch but this dad seems to be taking a responsible part in the upbringing.
