Icelandic wildlife photos – #2 Rock Ptarmigan

This Rock Ptarmigan was sitting right by a path in Skaftafell National Park. Because it didn’t move away, it may have had a nest nearby that it was protecting. It was sitting on part of a rock wall.

Having encountered so many noisy and territorial birds along the way, it was really a surprise to see one so calm.
