Black Grouse

STATUS: Retired, Green Band Only, Rare Bird
LATIN NAME: Tetrao tetrix
SHAPE: Mostly Dinner Plates But Also Serving And Accessory Items

NOTE: This Portmeirion bird was retired very early in production, I think, because of its name as used by Portmeirion. It is also called another name that, if I used it on this page, might get my website banned! It is a rare bird and getting hard to find.
