capercaillie 松鸡

来自苏格兰方言capull coille,丛林马。capull, 马,见cavalcade, 马队。coille, 见hill, 山林。后指松鸡。

capercaillie: [16] The name of the capercaillie, a very large species of grouse, means literally ‘horse of the woods’ in Scots Gaelic. The Gaelic form of the word is capalcoille, a compound formed from capall ‘horse’ (probably borrowed from Latin caballus ‘horse’, source of English cavalier) and coille ‘woods’.
