Sage Grouse have elaborate courtship rituals and the male's strutting display are somewhat of a spectacle for birders to view every spring. Males perform in leks for several hours in the early morning and evening during these spring months. This new design features our male Birdorable Sage Grouse showing off, while a female looks the other way.

Proud of our Peacock

Birdorable Indian Peafowl

We are so pleased to introduce our newest Birdorable bird: the Indian Peafowl! The Peacock has been one of the most suggested birds here at Birdorable. This gorgeous species is the national bird of India, and we've added a Peafowl of India design to the shop, as well as products featuring the Peacock by itself - including cute custom shoes pictured below.

Peafowl appear countless times in Indian mythology and popular culture. During our travels in India, we often came across Peacock imagery, like at the City Palace of Jaipur:


We also saw several of them during our visits to natural parks, and once were even so lucky to find a male in full breeding splendor!


Peacocks appear not only in Indian art and nature, but in advertisements too:

Peacocks are indeed striking when in full breeding plumage. They sport about 150 long display feathers, which are not tail feathers but elongated upper tail coverts. These are shed each year during their annual molt and often collected afterward due to the prized decorative value of the feathers. Here are some more photos of this gorgeous species.

Meet the Birdorable Willow Ptarmigan: The Master of Camouflage

Today, we're thrilled to introduce the latest addition to the Birdorable Bonanza: the charming Willow Ptarmigan. This adorable bird is a marvel of adaptation, showcasing a striking seasonal transformation in its plumage. During the winter months, it dons a completely white coat (as shown above), allowing it to blend seamlessly with snowy landscapes. As the seasons change, so does its plumage, transitioning to a mostly marble brown color, providing excellent camouflage among the forest floors and moorlands.

The Willow Ptarmigan, known as the Willow Grouse in Europe, is a bird of many terrains. It makes its home across a diverse range of environments, from the forests and moorlands of Scotland and Scandinavia to the vast expanses of Siberia. Across the Atlantic, it is equally at home in the wild landscapes of Canada and Alaska, where it is held in high esteem as the state bird since 1955. Its unique adaptation to seasonal changes not only aids in its survival but also makes it a fascinating subject for bird enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.

Birdorable 192: Horned Guan

Cute Birdorable Horned Guan

The Horned Guan, the 192th bird in our Birdorable Bonanza, is a large turkey-like bird with remarkable plumage and a striking red head-horn. The species lives in mountainous forests of Mexico and Guatemala at high elevation. The endangered Horned Guan is a target bird for many birdwatchers traveling within their range. Because of where it lives it's often hard for people to get to see it. In fact in can be quite an ordeal - Birdhick even calls it a death march.
