Nestled amidst the pristine landscapes of the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions, the rock ptarmigan is a captivating bird that has inspired awe with its stunning features and remarkable adaptability to harsh environments. Will feels fortunate to have encountered these awe-inspiring birds during his ventures in the rugged Scottish Highlands, where he was entranced by their beauty and resilience. The rock ptarmigan’s seasonal transformation, from snow-white plumage in winter to speckled brown feathers in summer, is a remarkable demonstration of their ability to adapt to changing environments.
