Rock Wren Salpinctes obsoletus

In Kittitas County, common in rocky canyons and talus slopes in steppe and dry-forest zones. Highest densities along Columbia and Yakima Rivers with lesser numbers extending west along Manastash and Naneum Ridges. Only King County record at Kelly Butte on 7 July 1995. Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) maps high-elevation terrain north of Snoqualmie Pass along both sides of Cascade crest and in western Wenatchee Mountains as peripheral breeding range. This prediction not supported by BBA surveys, perhaps in part due to access difficulties. Gap-predicted range across northwestern Kittitas Valley also not supported by BBA records.
