I agree that the Broad-billed Sandpiper is a Curlew Sandpiper. A few other queries :

On page 2:

1. I assume the "Asian Koel" is Common Koel. Asian Koel is the split that has been found on Christmas and Cocos.

2. I agree that the "Greater Sand Plover" is a Lesser Sand Plover.

3. The "Great Frigatebird" looks like a Lesser Frigatebird? Not 100% certain of this, but it does look like it has white leading up under the wing.

4. The "Black-bellied Plover" (aka Grey Plover) looks more a Pacific Golden Plover to me? Again not 100% certain. It doesn't look heavy enough, and the eye doesn't look dark enough.

Page 4 :

1. I agree the "Sacred Kingfisher" is a Forest Kingfisher.
