A primeval bird disappears

A primeval bird is disappearing. This is what Prof. Peter Berthold, the well-known ornithologist and bird conservationist, says about the capercaillie. For more than 65 years, he has observed, researched and accompanied this "quaint" creature, which is becoming increasingly rare in this country. Emotionally and with commitment, he reports on the dramatic history of a species that, like hardly any other, is a symbol of the fauna of the German forest. His expert knowledge is enriched by personal stories from six decades of impressive experiences on his observation tours in the Black Forest.
