SPECIES INFO

The Siberian Grouse, Dendragapus falcipennis, is a medium-sized grouse.

It is very similar to the North American Spruce Grouse, to which it is closely related.

The Siberian grouse mostly occurs in forests of spruce, fir, larch and pine. Its range is far eastern Russia, and a small population formerly inhabited the far northeast of China, where they are probably now extinct.

Siberian Grouse is classified as Globally Near Threatened by Birdlife International due to loss of habitat caused by increased exploitation of forests and forest fires. Conservation efforts are essential to reduce the risk to this species.
