Wilson's Phalarope Phalaropus tricolor

No "confirmed" nesting records in our four-county area, although pairs have been noted in early June on three atlas blocks near Cle Elum and Ellensburg in Kittitas County. Single birds also noted at Auburn and Carnation in King County. Core habitat includes freshwater ponds and wetlands in non-forested lowlands and montane valleys. Wilson's Phalarope has nested at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge (Paulson 1993), although perhaps an isolated event. Often nests at specific sites sporadically.
