Canyon Wren Catherpes mexicanus

Uncommon and local in deep, rocky canyons of Yakima and Columbia Rivers. Two "possible" records from rocky areas west of Ellensburg disjunct from core range. Record of 28 March 1999 from Thorp Prairie most likely of bird still on winter range, but another from late May in North Riggs Canyon vicinity hints at confirmation of Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) predictions of breeding in lower Manastash Valley/upper Umtanum Creek.
