Being able to blend in with the environment is the Ptarmian’s specialty. By shedding and there by changing colors is a matter of life and death for the bird, because it is hunted and killed by other animals and us humans alike. The Ptarmigan is a key specie in Iceland’s ecosystem and one of Icelandic nature’s signature bird. Hunting Ptarmigans is a popular sport and Ptarmigan steak is part of my Christmas tradition as it is for many Icelandic families. The Icelandic mountain Ptarmigan are of a particular subspecies that is found nowhere else in the world and the Latin name for them is Lagopus muta islandorum.
