Chipping Sparrow Spizella passerina

Common breeder in dry, open forests of Kittitas County. Locally common in forest clearings in extreme northeastern and southeastern King County. Fairly common but local in Kitsap County. BBA records from Whidbey Island and lowland King County all from late May, and probably represent overshoots from core western Washington breeding area in Fort Lewis Prairies or migrants en route to more northerly breeding grounds.
