This article is about an older version of DF.
A large creature found grazing on mushrooms deep underground. It walks on two legs and has the head of a bird with the horns of a great elk.

Elk birds are large flightless birds that can be used as a mount by goblin siegers. Though they are generally non-hostile, they will interrupt tasks throughout the fortress and, if engaged, will usually kill an untrained dwarf (or even a war dog) in one-on-one combat.

Butchering an Elk Bird will also result in a single feather.

Unlike elk, both genders of elk bird have horns. This is nice, because elk bird parts are worth even more than elk parts, with a value multiplier of three.

Tamed elk birds require a pasture to survive; however, due to their dual status as grazers and egg-layers, they will prefer to claim a nest box and sit on it until they starve to death.Bug:4637
