Black-billed Capercaillie

Tetrao urogalloides Middendorff, AT 1853

The black-billed capercaillie, eastern capercaillie, Siberian capercaillie, spotted capercaillie, or stone capercaillie, is a large grouse species closely related to the more widespread western capercaillie. It is a sedentary species which breeds in the larch taiga forests of eastern Siberia as well as parts of northern Mongolia and China. In the far west of its distribution, the black-billed capercaillie has been known to hybridize with the western capercaillie. Compared to its western cousin, the Siberian capercaillie is also more adaptable to open habitat, given the larch forests it lives in are usually less dense than other taiga communities. Thus, they tend to avoid thick coniferous forests. Source: Wikipedia
