The black grouse is closely related to the Caucasian grouse. The female is greyish-brown and has a cackling call. She takes all responsibility for nesting and caring for the chicks, as is typical with gamebirds. The black grouse's genome was sequenced in The black grouse is one of the many species first described in the 10th edition of Systema Naturae in by Carl Linnaeusand still bears its original binomial name. Both Tetrao and tetrix come from Ancient Greek words referring to some form of game bird.
The male and female are sometimes referred to by their folk names, blackcock and greyhen respectively. These names first occur in the literature with John Ray in His song is loud, bubbling and somewhat dove -like.
There is a population in the Alpsand isolated remnants in GermanyFranceBelgium and the Netherlands. The species disappeared from Bulgaria in the 19th century.
Although this species is declining in western Europeit is not considered to be vulnerable globally due to the large population global estimate is million individuals and slow rate of decline.
This has looked at local populations that are vulnerable to the extinction vortex. For example, in Styria in Austria. In the United Kingdom black grouse are found in upland areas of Wales, the Pennines and most of Scotland. Best looked for on farmland and moorland with nearby forestry or scattered trees. They have traditional Black Grouse - Various - Vanishing Wildlife sites where the males display. They have declined in some parts of the UK especially Englandhaving disappeared from many of their former haunts.
A programme to re-introduce black grouse into the wild started in in the Upper Derwent Valley Rebel Rebel - Kings Of Noise of the Peak District in England. In France there has been much work regarding the birds and their risk of flying into ski-lifts.
Black grouse have a very distinctive and well-recorded courtship ritual or game.

In western Europe these gatherings Black Grouse - Various - Vanishing Wildlife involve more than 40 birds; in Russia is not uncommon and have been recorded. The tails of black-cocks have, since late Victorian Only In My Mind - The Suiters - Do The Ankle-Twist!, been popular adornments for hats worn with Highland Dress.
