File Under: How Terrible!

Worcester's buttonquail (Turnix worcesteri)

A rare quail found in the Philippines, previously thought to be extinct, was photographed right before it was whisked away and sold as food in the local market!  The KAMS Blog thinks it was actually sort of cute (for a bird), but hopefully there are few more in the wilds of the Philippines.  For more information see the National Geographic website here.
