Common Loon Gavia immer

Uncommon west of Cascade crest on water-supply reservoirs in Tolt, Cedar, and Green River watersheds, on Calligan Lake, and perhaps also on a few smaller natural lakes scattered across Cascade foothills. All BBA nesting reports come from areas with limited public access, indicating that nesting not compatible with recreational boating or residential development. Absence of nesting reports east of Cascade crest on large reservoirs of Yakima River system may result from intensity of recreational use plus dramatic variation in summer lake levels due to irrigation draw-down.
