In this manuscript Fleming explains what intrigues him about the rufous-throated solitaire, a Caribbean thrush, and led him to undertake an expedition to spot the bird in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. Fleming famously took the name James Bond from the author of Birds of the West Indies, and he here admits that his ornithological interests also lay behind the name of the psychic virgin Solitaire in Live and Let Die. The completed article was first published in The Times on 8 April 1956 (Gilbert C54).
