ABSTRACT
Grouse, a game bird of temperate Europe and North America. The grouse is related to the pheasant. Grouse are stocky, chickenlike birds from 16 to 30 inches (40 to 75 cm) long. They have small heads and short, thick bills. In a few species, the legs and feet are feathered. Grouse feed chiefly on vegetation. They spend most of their time on the ground, where they are well concealed by protective coloration.
