I just compiled a list for this topic. It's the most commonly e-birded birds in the US ranked from most common to rarest, with species we've done overlaid in green. 

Some interesting statistics:

Our least reported bird that we've done for this topic is American Bittern (352), barley beating out Olive-sided Flycatcher (332). The most common bird we haven't done is Northern Cardinal (2).

Did you have to make a new account with zero birds to get this from the ebird.org/targets page? That's the only place I've seen where it reports percentages. I've clicked around a bunch and not found a way to do this in general.

I have an old account that doesn't have any observations on it that I used to get the percentages. I haven't found another way to do it either.

That's bigger than my life list ?

Ha ha ha ha, you just made me realize I need to fix that....it's 167 now ?  Had a Prairie Warbler and Bullock's Oriole last week, and a couple of fly-overs, White-faced Ibis and Yellow-crowned Night-Heron ?  I had a Common Loon fly-over a couple of years ago. No telling how many fly-overs I've missed, though ?
