ABA Checklist Appendix, Part 1: Extirpated Exotics

With the 2014 changes to the Recording Rules and Interpretations, species in this appendix may now be counted on official lists submitted to the ABA’s Listing Central if:

  1. an individual of the species were encountered during the time when the species was present on the main Checklist, and
  2. the encountered individual belonged to, or strayed from, a population believed to be established at the time of the encounter.

For each species listed below, we have provided the year in which it was removed from the main ABA Checklist, as well as the populations that were considered countable. The year a species was removed from the main Checklist represents the last year during which an encounter with that species is considered countable on current lists. For example, you may now count that Yellow-headed Parrot you saw in southeast FL during or prior to 1982, but you may not count that Yellow-headed Parrot if you saw it during or after 1983.
