Chris, none of the birds you mention have been put on the list by anyone, so they can not be taken off the list.

The idea of this thread was to put species on the list which perhaps no BFer has yet seen. If anyone visiting this thread has seen the species so listed or know of a BFer who has seen any, then they will be acknowledged as such.

Of these birds the only one that could perhaps remain in the wild is nukupu'u, which was last maybe seen (not 100% certain) around 2000 but is most likely extinct. (Even if a nukupu'u is hanging around extinction would still be inevitable.) akialoa and kakawahie have not been seen since the 1960's and are long extinct. You'd be a lucky doggie or as old as the hills to have seen any of these flying around in the past.

I have seen lots of hawaiian crows ('alala)...in cages. I think they're sending one to San Diego for public showing. There were one or two left in the wild until about 2001.

Sorry Larry,
Bad grammar on my part. I meant to say that they could be, possibly, added to the list - then ticked off.

You can knock off:
Andaman Crake - James E, Rob H
Bogota rail - Pete M (and probably many others)
Austral Rail - ditto
Sakalava rail - ditto
Plain-flanked Rail - ditto

The others probably a good bet though
cheers, a

I've yet to miss Turner's Eremomela at Kakamega, so I guess that one can be taken off the list as well.

I think you should add "possibly extinct" after Jamaica Petrel, it is listed as certainly extinct by Raffaele in the West Indian field guide, and not even included in the index in Clements.

Someone mentioned Puerto Rican Nightjar in one of the posts; I have that as well as all other currently recognized endemics from that island.

This is still regularly seen on grasslands around Lake Haebeema, West Papua. I saw a pair back in 1992.

We will be traveling around the central and eastern US during most of September. I may not get the "bird lists" updated for a while, so please bear with me. I will update the list when I can!

Did you ever see a Kakapo in New Zealand? If you did your a very lucky man as there are less than 150 remaining.

Yep, Kakapo seen by myself in 2002 breeding season on Codfish. Also the Chatham Island Petrel (which is not the same as the Taiko Larry by the way...Taiko is Magenta Petrel), Chatham Island Robin and Chatham Island Snipe...4 weeks on South East Island (Rangatira) in 2001 took care of those...it was nice!

Although I haven't seen Bermuda Petrel, I know people who have.
I think Bird Forum member Gunnar Engblom has seen Junin Grebe.
I would be interested in knowing if anyone has seen Unspotted Saw-whet Owl, especially in Costa Rica.

As have I and several others on this forum. Same can be said about a number of other species on the list (many of which, like the Junín Grebe, actually are reasonably easy). Still, unless things change, the Junín Grebe may soon be a thing of the past. When it comes to seeing it, the truly difficult Junín endemic is here:

Rasmus, if you name the birds on the "Not Seen" list which you have seen I will move them down to the "Seen" list.

* I have not personally researched the "Not Seen" birds to see which are easy and which are difficult to see.

** I have moved the Junín Grebe to the "Seen List".

FlushUnderFoot,

Would you like to suggest some of those which are not already on the "Not Seen" list?
