Western Bluebird Sialia mexicana

Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) did not map Western Bluebird as breeding in Island or Kitsap Counties, prediction borne out by BBA surveys with exception of single "confirmed" record at Bear Lake in southern Kitsap. In King County, uncommon and local in forest clearings at lower elevations of western Cascade flank. Locally common in Kittitas County in open conifer forests, farmlands, steppe habitats, and ecotone between forest and steppe zones. Absent from Kittitas Valley agricultural lands northwest of Ellensburg, contra predicted range in Gap report.
