I don't think this covers the Solomons.  It is, in any case, ghastly, with
illustrations bearing little resemblance to the birds and a useless text.

Another poster mentioned rails on Malaita.  For a colour illustration of
Woodford's Rail and of a new species, Gallirallus rovianae from New Georgia
and four neighbouring Islands, check out Auk 108(3): 461-70 (1991).
