Horned Lark Eremophila alpestris

Subspecies E.a. merrilli abundant and widespread breeder in pastures, rangeland, and steppe habitats of eastern Kittitas County. Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) maps breeding range of subspecies E.a. alpina along crest of Wenatchee Mountains from Ingalls Peak to Trico Mountain; prediction not confirmed by BBA records, but survey efforts perhaps inadequate in this remote area. Declining coastal subspecies E.a. strigata not detected in our BBA surveys, and not projected to breed in four-county area by Washington Gap report.
