Grouse are heavily built like other Galliformes such as chickens. Spruce Grouse are year-round residents in the Northern part of Michigan. Inconspicuous and relatively quiet, they spend most of their time in black spruce stands and young jack pine forests searching for seasonally available foods like blueberries, flowers, black spruce buds, moss spore capsules and insects.
