Black-backed Woodpecker Picoides arcticus

In Kittitas County, uncommon in moderate- and high-elevation, open-canopy conifer forests, where very thinly distributed. Rare in King County at high elevation near Cascade crest, with two "confirmed" records during atlas period. Core range in drier forests at lower elevation than American Three-toed Woodpecker. Strongly attracted to burns and clearcut edges, so distribution may vary with availability of newly created preferred habitats.
