Caucasuan Black Grouse
Our team went to check some birding places in Mountains. It seems that Caucasian Black grouse population is doing fine, since we had two three different flocks together. Still there is not much snow in the Mountains and this birds were quite high, almost on the habitat of Caucasian Snow Cocks. Team of Ecotours Georgia is looking for the new birding places to make our trips more diverse. We will update you once in a while when we will have some interesting information.
