Genus Bonasa

Hazel Grouse - The Hazel Grouse or Hazel Hen is one of the smaller members of the grouse family of birds. It is a sedentary species, breeding across northern Eurasia and central and eastern Europe in dense, damp, mixed coniferous woodland, preferably with some spruce.


Severtzov - It is a sedentary bird which inhabits conifer-rich mixed montane forests of central China. The bird is very similar in appearance to the Hazel Grouse apart from less of a white stripe on the head and neck.

Ruffed grouse - The Ruffed Grouse is frequently referred to as the "partridge". This is technically wrong - partridges are unrelated phasianids, and in hunting may lead to confusion with the Grey Partridge, it is a bird of woodlands, not open areas. The Ruffed Grouse is also sometimes called a "grinch" in parts of rural Kentucky and Ohio, likely due to its spectral quality in the woods.
