Forest Enets

I saw a wood-grouse

In this very short text, an Enets man recalls a trip to a nearby lake and describes a big black bird he saw sitting on a tree. Not knowing which species it belonged to, the man thought of approaching the bird but decided not to. 

Recording: The story was recorded in Potapovo in 2008 by Andrey Shluinsky. It was transcribed by Andrey Shluinsky with the help of Vitaliy Bolin and glossed by Andrey Shluinsky.
