  • Canada Warbler

Significant misses:

  • Great Horned Owl
  • White-eyed Vireo
  • Yellow Warbler
  • Blue-winged Warbler?
  • Blackburnian Warbler
  • Blackpoll Warbler
  • Indigo Bunting?
  • Purple Finch

Birds with question-marks are listed as being relatively common on the 1992 checklist, but I am skeptical that suitable habitat still exists, or that they remain common.
