Malleefowl

Leipoa ocellata Gould, 1840

The Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata) is a stocky ground-dwelling Australian bird about the size of a domestic chicken (to which it is distantly related). They are notable for the large nesting mounds constructed by the males and lack of parental care after the chicks hatch. It is the only living representative of the genus Leipoa, though the extinct Giant Malleefowl was a close relative. Source: Wikipedia
