Birds of Andorra
Birds not only delight people of every age, they are also indispensable for the ecological balance. With these three very different birds, which have existed for millions of years, Andorra shows the diversity and importance of these flying animals.

The proud Western Capercaillie is a so-called resident bird. It thus belongs to a bird species that does not go on regular seasonal migrations. Capercaillies found in Scottish woodlands are the biggest species of grouse in the world. They also live in Spain, central Europe, Scandinavia and across Russia to northern Asia. The Scottish population was introduced from Sweden in the 19th century after the local birds became extinct.
