In the evening, lekking begins with the arrival of the male in the playground about an hour before the sun sets and lasts until full darkness. In the evening, capercaillie mostly plays on the trees and at the end of the game, males usually stay on the same trees on which they played.
In the morning, lekking begins 2-3 hours before the sun rises. At the beginning of the game, the capercaillie mostly plays on trees, usually leaving the tree when a hen arrives to the game. If one of the males has gone to the ground, then others will soon follow him. When playing on the ground, the capercaillie moves in a distinctive pose - with an extended neck and a tail spreaded - moving back and forth and occasionally making high jumps. The morning game lasts until late in the morning, and then males leave the lekking ground to rest and eat.
