Popular upland birds that are found in Alaska include grouse and ptarmigan. The term "upland" refers to where they are often found.

The basic shape of upland birds is similar to chickens. They also have short, rounded wings that are good for short flights and strong legs that are good for running.

Most male upland birds have more colorful feathers than the females. The female's plain feathers help her provide camouflage cover for her nest.
