It is a bird, a Western Capercaillie ( Tetrao urogallus) , to be exact , also known as a Wood Grouse or Heather Cock. It ranges from Scotland to Siberia and can weigh as much as 15 pounds. Once considered a tasty treat , it was hunted into near-extinction in much of its range, and is now protected in most countries. BTW..there's a Scottish band named after this bird, and you can hear them on You Tube.
