A black grouse is a small game animal. Its carcass yields 2 black grouse cuts, 1 black grouse fat, and ~0.2 lbs of black grouse hide that, when tanned, becomes black grouse leather. If you intend to use the skin be careful when killing the bird, as it is all too easy to damage the skin to an unusable state just by using a point or edge attack on it. If you can, it is always best to kill animals with blunt attacks because they will not damage the animal's skin.

You can sometimes find nests of them on the ground, containing feathers and eggs. (I found one in lichenous pine forest in fallow month, played v3.40).

The bird can be caught in light lever traps or small deadfall traps.

URW Game Encyclopedia description

The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the F1 key) describes the black grouse thusly:

Black grouse is the most numerous forest game bird and widely hunted for meat. They are about the same size as domesticated hen.

Black grouses can thrive in all kinds of forest habitat, but particularly in well-lit sparse woodland and near the margins of open areas such as mires and shores.

Black grouses nest in the ground. The nest is well concealed, often beneath a tree or bush or among dwarf shrubs, and lined with spruce twigs and feathers. During their mating season in early spring cooing and tuneful babbling calls of black grouses are often heard.
