You wonder if there are any new species tucked away in one of the hot countries, the Hainanese peacock pheasant was only described as a separate species in 2008/2009 http://www.birdlife.org/datazone/speciesfactsheet.php?id=32404

But something completely new and not just a split out would be fantastic.
