Dear Sir, Thunderbird. -The ecology of the god's bird seen in the photo-

I've put together a slide show of photos of the prefectural bird, "Grouse" in Nagano Prefecture.
Over winter, spring, pairing, child-bearing, protection, and winter.
There is something similar to us humans in their continuous activities.
Males stretch their body to protect females, and females live their lives and raise chicks.
That way of life is obedient, loving, and sublime.
I hope that you can feel something from their appearance.
