Lewis's Woodpecker Melanerpes lewis

Not recorded in Island, Kitsap, and King Counties, although historically present in western Washington's forest burns and prairie landscapes (Jewett et al. 1953). Fairly common in open forests and woody riparian corridors in Kittitas County in ponderosa pine zone and its shrub-steppe interface. Still widespread in these habitats, although local and thought to be declining. Records extend east and south well beyond predicted distribution mapped by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997).
