The Malleefowl or lowan is a ground-dwelling bird from Australia. They're the largest mound builders in Australia, which the male builds from dirt, leaves and sticks it finds in the mallee forest.
Malleefowl are shy and solitary birds that usually only fly to escape danger or get in a tree to roost.
