(1995) Megapodius nicobariensis abbotti Oberholser.
THE GREAT NICOBAR MEGAPODE.
Megapodius nicobariensis abbotti, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. v, p, 439.
This race of Megapode is restricted to the Great and Little Nicobar Islands, South of the Nicobar group.
Having given the distribution of this Megapode there is nothing to add, as all their habits, nidification etc. are exactly the same, so far as is known, as those of the preceding bird.
The only eggs I have seen are four taken by B. B. Osmaston on the Great Nicobar ; these are very washed out, almost white eggs, like those of the Nicobar bird in similar condition. They measure 54.0 x 50.0 ; 85.2 x 52.0 ; 83.0 x 47.5 and 81.1 x 50.2 mm.
They were taken in April 1905.
