A unique centre for an emblematic species.

The Capercaillie's Nest is a centre devoted to this emblematic Asturian bird listed in the Asturian Regional Catalogue of Threatened Vertebrate Wildlife Species of Asturias, as well as one of the most difficult species to breed.

This centre therefore aims to make the characteristics of these species better known to the public at large, promoting their defense and thereby contributing to improving their status. It has an audiovisual area and a classroom intended to serve as a work area for school groups.

The permanent exhibition consists of display panels which describe such significant aspects of this species as its life cycle, moulting, flight, microhabitat and mating ritual, among others.
