The Guadalcanal Thicketbird (Megalurulus whitneyi) is a bird species. Previously placed in the "Old World Warbler" family Sylviidae, it does not seem to be a close relative of the typical warblers; probably it belongs in the grass warbler family Locustellidae. It is found on two Pacific Ocean islands; Guadacanal in the Solomon Islands and Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. The Guadalcanal Thicketbird is around 16.5 cm long, a slender bird with long legs and a long tail. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
