Our paper describing the avifauna of the Mt. Karimui area is now published in the new issue of the Bulletin of the British Ornithologists' Club. We provide a full species list with elevational distributions, comment on rare and poorly-known species and - best of all - discuss cases where populations have changed markedly in abundance between Jared Diamond's fieldwork at this site in the 1960s and our recent fieldwork. For example, the Bicolored Mouse-warbler was not recorded by Diamond in 1965, but we found it to be relatively common in 2012. We suggest the Bicolored Mouse-warbler was truly absent a half-century ago and that this species has recently colonized Mt. Karimui's northwestern ridge, a rare example of dynamic populations of resident tropical birds in undisturbed forest.
