December 16, 2016 – Tabon Scrubfowl, Philippine Scrubfowl, or Philippine Megapode (Megapodius cumingii)

These megapodes are found in the tropical forests of Borneo, Sulawesi, and the Philippines. Their diet is mainly invertebrates, including larval termites, beetles, and snails. They also feed on some fruit and other plant material. Like other megapodes they do not build nests, but bury their eggs in mounds of rotting plants where they are warmed by the sun and decomposition.
