What about Mississippi Kite as next breeder, although I suspect they could already be breeding in the state somewhere.

>>> 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.
