Photo Wanted

The Severtzov's Grouse is also known as the Chinese Grouse or Black-breasted Hazel Grouse (Bonasa sewerzowi). It is named after the Russian explorer and naturalist Nikolai Alekseevich Severtzov.

This grouse is closely related to the Hazel Grouse.


This sedentary bird inhabits the conifer-rich mixed montane forests of central China.


This grouse looks like the Hazel Grouse apart from less of a white stripe on the head and neck.
