Ultra High Relief minting

The Capercaillie, or  Mountain Cock, is the largest of all grouse species and lives in conifer-dominated, open mountain forests with sandy areas for sand bathing and possibility to start fly as well as little disturbance by humans. Due to staying at the same place all the year long there has to be enough food like blueberries, spruce needles and insects.
