red grouse


In Britain red grouse are the "default" for grouse, also commonly known as Moor Fowl or Moor Game. They are so similar to willow grouse, found across swathes of northern Europe, as to be indistinguishable. The willow grouse inhabits heather moors with willow, birch and juniper scrub while the red prefers moors and peatbogs with crowberry and cranberry. These are the grouse associated with the "Glorious" 12th (of August) and are found on the grouse moors of Scotland.
