Metso, metsiemme komein lintu. The Capercaillie, the Most Magnificent Bird in Our Forests.

Metso, Tetrao urogallus,  on Suomen suurin metsäkanalintu. Koiraslintua kutsutaan ukkometsoksi, naarasta koppeloksi. Lintu on nykyään harvinainen. Olimme kovin onnellisia saadessamme nähdä komean linnun metsässämme.

 The Capercaillie, Tetrao urogallus, is the biggest grouse in Finland. The male is called ukkometso and the female  koppelo. This grouse is seen seldom. We were  very happy when we got an opportunity to see this great capercaillie in our forest.

Metso käveli rauhassa meistä välittämättä. The capercaillie walked slowly and didn´t notice us at all.
Kauempana
Metso poistui valtakuntaansa. He walked to his kingdom.

  1. Beautiful bird! When I was a kid, I really enjoyed reading stories about forest and animals living there. This bird was one of my favourites, but I’ve never seen one in a real life!
