'Secondary forest' read as 'logged primary forest'. The area concerned had not previously been clear-cut, as suggested by the former term.
Species to be omitted from the report:
Treron vernans Pink necked pigeon
Phapitreron leucotis White Eared Brown Dove
Ducula poliocephala Pink Bellied Imperial Pigeon
Dicaeum hypoleucum Buzzing Flowerpecker
Aethopyga pulcherrima Mountain Sunbird
Arachnothera longirostra Little Spider Hunter
Field notes inadequate to substantiate these records
Any numbers read in the report should be viewed with the above in mind

Chrysocolaptes lucidus grandis, the Polillo subspecies is characterised by the smaller white spots on its crown and under-parts that are both browner and larger (Hachisuka, 1930).
