Birds I need to SEE

I've given it up on the Big Year Idea this year lol. Only 201 so far, so no way I can exceed my 333 species or something last year(waiting for the Wrentit Club list to be published at Pasadena Audubon! I was 18th for 2015, at 274 species).

But do want to add more to my LA county species list;

California Condor
Zone-tailed Hawk(probably impossible at LA county)
Luke Tiller saw other Hawks like Broad-winged, so maybe should follow him on his future excursions lol.
Pacific Golden-Plover
Jaeger, either Parasitic or Pomarine(may've seen Parasitic but didn't properly see it)
Lesser Black-Backed Gull
Slaty-backed Gull
Black Tern(hopefully we can find it next month at Piute)
Blue-crowned Parakeet
Monk Parakeet
Short-eared Owl(also very rare)
Cave Swallow(was spotted at Santa Fe Dam last Fall. Also very rare here)
Purple Martin
Summer Tanager
Thick-billed Kingbird
Blackburnian Warbler(was reported at Hansen Dam by Kimball Garrett not too long ago)
Prothonotary Warbler(reported by Jon Dunn some time ago at West San Gabriel River Parkway Nature Trail; very rare)

SUTA and TBKI, heard it but could not actually see it.

Should be more, but those are what immediately come to mind.
