Lincoln's Sparrow Melospiza lincolnii

Fairly common and local, frequenting mid- and high-elevation bogs, swamps, and wet meadows mostly at and east of Cascade crest, with few if any BBA records below 3,000 feet. No records from high Cascades north of Snoqualmie Pass, no doubt reflecting paucity of preferred specialized habitat but also due in part to access difficulties for survey teams. Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) understates predicted range in eastern part of Wenatchee Mountains (Naneum Ridge) and also in Naches/Little Naches drainage and adjacent Manastash Ridge, near Kittitas/Yakima county boundary.
