Reckon you guys could certainly do with someone else joining in
It seems like it.
Although it doesn't make any real difference, I have still one species that I could play, if no one else has seen it and runs off of species to play: Cape Verde Storm Petrel. I don't count it in my lifelist, but could use it for this game.
Saw it (one) in 1997 in Guinea-Bissau (from a sand islet on the Bijagós Islands, HERE); as the "Madeiran Storm-Petrel" multi-split was still far from happening I took notes of it but considered it just Oceanodroma castro (it was a first for Guinea-Bissau). Although it was together with 2 Leach's SP (also firsts for GB) I think the proximity to the Cape Verde archipelago makes jabejabe a more likely species...
If no one plays it I'll probably throw it in. :)

Thinking about it, in France - Quail heard flying up from the patio as I went out to the caravan for the night, Little Ringed Plover calling from beside the pond and Scops Owl in the Eucalyptus were on the property (actually the latter just outside), and a Reed Warbler for several days in the hedge probably count.
Is this the thread where you meant to post Dan?: https://www.birdforum.net/threads/bird-species-seen-just-the-once-in-your-yard-garden.404075/page-3

This actually could have followed my Green-bellied Hummingbird quite well - Green/Verde!

There's some potentially low-hanging fruit for anyone who has been to Angola/Zambia/Tanzania. Also there are some Madagascan endemics left for anyone who has been there, particularly wetland stuff. @foresttwitcher seems to have posted some Malagasy stuff and might have some more to contribute.

A handful of species from some more well visited places too like Costa Rica, Australia, South Africa and Thailand that I'm surprised have not gone too.

Other than that, the biggest gains will be from anyone who has taken the time to thoroughly island-hop through the Philippines, Indonesia and Melanesia.

I've got a couple Myanmar Endemics and Hispaniolan Endemics, but only one Philippine Endemic. The rest is scattered between Asia, Africa, and S. America (mostly Guyana and Brazil).
