Bachman's Warbler

Extinct 2021 CESoutheastern and Midwestern United States, Cuba

Bachman's Warbler was officially declared extinct in 2021: "Like other bird species recently declared extinct, Bachman’s warbler, once at home in the bottomland forests of the Southeast and, during the winter, in Cuba, fell victim to what kills so many birds — habitat destruction (along with hurricanes in Cuba). Bachman’s warbler was last seen in 1988."

Christoph Irmscher, "With Bachman’s warbler and others added to the ‘extinct’ list, we must support biodiversity agreements (commentary)," Mongabay, October 20, 2021.
