  • Malga Talé – The grouse forest

The recovery plan of Malga Talé involved setting up a thematic itinerary dedicated to grouse and their complex strategies for adapting to the environment.

The building, easily accessible, is in fact located in a pasture area characterized by the consolidated presence of mysterious wild birds. The surrounding clearing, the spruce trees around it and the highest peaks are inhabited by the grouse, the black grouse, the mountain francolin and the ptarmigan.

The itinerary created inside Malga Talé is a dynamic education tool, since it follows the rules of birdwatching: visitors are the protagonists of a journey that leads them to discover, through observation, the galliformes in their natural environment, reconstructed through the use of sounds, images and habitat reproductions.

The traces left by the elegant birds in the woods and on the snow, their nutrition, mimicry techniques, dimorphism, the wedding parade of black grouse, are all stages of a path full of suggestive experiences. The itinerary is also suitable for the disabled.
