Grouse (Tetraonidae)

Siberian Grouse (Falcipennis falcipennis) - HBW 2, p. 401

French: Tétras de Sibérie German: Sichelhuhn Spanish: Gallo Siberiano
Other common names: Sharp-winged Grouse, Siberian/Asian Spruce Grouse

Taxonomy: Tetrao falcipennis Hartlaub, 1855, southern shores of Sea of Okhtosk and Stanovoy Mountains.
Closely related to F. canadensis, with which forms superspecies; these two often included in Dendragapus, but probably merit generic separation (see page 376). Birds from Sakhalin I were described as race muratai, but differences are very slight. Monotypic.

Distribution: E Transbaikalia and S Yakutia E to Sea of Okhotsk, and S to Little Chingan Mts, lower Amur region and Sikhote Alin Mts; Sakhalin I.
