The Willow Grouse was one of the first birds included in the Birds by Toikka collection, in year 1981, along with the Long -Tailed Duck, the Pheasant and the tiny Ptamigan.
It has been a very popular bird, and has been in production for a long time since.
Willow Grouse and Ptarmigan are both presented in the new Toikka book "In Oiva's Wonderland" on page 72, and in the book "Birds by Toikka" these are on page 19 and 21 respectively.
This individual is of a short and round type. It is signed in handwriting: Oiva Toikka Nuutajärvi Notsjö - the original way of signing the birds. So this bird is made in Nuutajärvi in the old times.
On the last picture you see this bird together with a tiny Ptarmigan of ours, that also is signed Oiva Toikka Nuutajärvi Notsjö.
