    We present our recent observations and compile other accounts of sightings or captures of 30 additional bird species reported for San Salvador Island, The Bahamas, since Sordahl compiled his checklist in 1996. Most are Nearctic-Neotropical migratory birds that either spend the non-breeding season on the island or stop over during migration. Additionally, based on our own and others' observations, we revised the status of 19 bird species that were previously listed as "transient, vagrant, or uncertain" on the island, and 9 species listed as "rare". We captured or observed many of these species between the months of December and April 2012-2014.
