Range Description

Aplonis feadensis is an extreme small-island specialist, occurring on a number of tiny atolls in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands. It breeds on islands in the Ninigo (3 km2), Hermit (8 km2), Tench (less than 1 km2), Nissan (37 km2), Nguria (5 km2) and Ontong Java groups (10 km2). It is fairly common on these islands (Bayliss-Smith 1972, Bell 1975, Finch 1986, Coates 1990), with day-counts of c.30 birds on Tench and Nissan in 1998 (G. Dutson pers. obs. 1998) and 15 on Tench in 1999 (Hornbuckle 1999). There is no indication of changes in the population.
