Abstract: Tetepare Island, in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands, hosts a significant avifauna of 80 species, including several species of conservation concern and evolutionary interest. The high abundance of fruit-eating pigeons on Tetepare is an indicator of the ecological values of this large uninhabited and unlogged island. Establishment of a field research station and ecolodge supported by trained local guides makes Tetepare a significant location for observing and researching Melanesian birds. Detection rates for birds from different locations on Tetepare are provided.
