Moluccan Scrubfowl

Eulipoa wallacei (Gray, GR, 1861)

The Moluccan Megapode (Eulipoa wallacei) also known as Wallace's Scrubfowl, Moluccan Scrubfowl or Painted Megapode, is a small, approximately 31 cm long, olive-brown megapode. The genus Eulipoa is monotypic, but the Moluccan Megapode is sometimes placed in Megapodius instead. Both sexes are similar with an olive-brown plumage, bluish-grey below, white undertail coverts, brown iris, bare pink facial skin, bluish-yellow bill and dark olive legs. There are light grey stripes on reddish-maroon feathers on its back. The young has brownish plumage, a black bill, legs and hazel iris. Source: Wikipedia
