Where does the Capercaillie live?
The capercaillie is a large bird that belongs to the grouse family.
It lives in the forests of Europe and Asia, where it feeds on berries, shoots and buds of conifer trees.
The capercaillie has different subspecies that vary in size, color and distribution.
The capercaillie is one of the rarest and most vulnerable birds in the UK, where it is found only in the pinewoods of northern Scotland.
It needs old, open pine forests with lush ground cover of heather, bilberry and other plants.
These habitats are threatened by deforestation, fragmentation, overgrazing and climate change.
The capercaillie population in the UK has declined rapidly in recent years, and it is in danger of facing extinction for the second time.
The capercaillie is also known as the wood grouse, the heather cock, or the cock-of-the-woods.
It is famous for its courtship display, which takes place in spring.
The male capercaillies gather in woodland clearings, where they parade around, fan their magnificent tail feathers and make strange gulping and clicking sounds.
They compete for the attention of the females, who choose the most dominant and attractive males to mate with.
The capercaillie is a symbol of the wild and ancient forests of Europe and Asia.
It is a beautiful and fascinating bird that needs our protection and conservation.
