A parallel is the loss of Bachman's Sparrow from a similar geographic area; these also bred in Maryland although I believe they disappeared in the 1970s so a bit earlier than the wren.  Would also be interesting to know if anyone on this list saw these in MD.

I was really most interested if anyone currently on MDbirding had seen this species while it was still one of our breeding birds. 
The first Maryland Breeding Bird Atlas discusses the decline of this species in Maryland; it was not confirmed as breeding during the state atlas period but was recorded in an earlier county atlas effort. Individual birds were recorded at Dan’s Rock into the late 1980s. The reason(s) for the loss of virtually the entire eastern population of Bewick’s Wren are not well understood. It has been linked to the expansion of the House Wren, but early ornithologists reported House Wrens as common breeders in this area, so not the whole story.

Folks Phil Davis will likely publish the last few records of Besick’s Wren in Md, or you can look them up in the MOS website.  Go to the MDDC records folder, GMJE

Speaking of Bewick’s Wren, anyone on this chat see the last breeding ones in western Maryland, on Dan’s Rock? I did not, a friend and I spoke about making the pilgrimage but we never did ...🙁 (This would have been in the 80s...)

They sent me a video clip with a singing House Wren. Black-capped Chickadee was a Carolina.
