Common Poorwill Phalaenoptilus nuttallii

Fairly common in canyons and open shrubby areas with rocky outcroppings in eastern Kittitas County. Nests on ground. Most prevalent on slopes above stream bottoms at or below forest/shrub-steppe edge, but also found locally in dry, open forest of higher mountains. Distribution of this nocturnal species imperfectly captured by BBA surveys, most of which took place in daylight hours. Deficiency of nighttime surveys particularly evident for Yakima Training Center.
