Prairie Falcon Falco mexicanus

Records generalized to full township/ranges; true population density thus much thinner than symbolized. Uncommon in Kittitas County in canyons and on cliffs and bluffs, primarily in eastern county below ponderosa pine zone. Hunts and occasionally winters in nesting habitats, but may disperse to high elevations above tree line during summer, and usually moves to open agricultural areas in winter. Individuals can be found in alpine habitats by August. Preys more regularly on mammals than does any other Washington falcon. May be declining in tandem with state's ground squirrel populations.
