Geelvink Scrubfowl

Megapodius geelvinkianus Meyer, AB, 1874

The Biak Scrubfowl or Biak Megapode (Megapodius geelvinkianus) is a species of bird in the Megapodiidae family. It is found only in West Papua, Indonesia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss. Some taxonomists consider this to be a subspecies of the Dusky Megapode, others as a subspecies of the Orange-footed Scrubfowl, but is increasingly looked at as a distinct species.
