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 an erly, quite round variant with a very nice tan and is signed in handwriting: Oiva Toikka Nuutajärvi Notsjö.
On the last picture you see this bird together with a very cute tiny Ptarmigan of ours (Ptarmigans are for sale elsewhere on this site).
