Mountain Bluebird Sialia currucoides

In Kittitas County, common in many habitats with available nesting cavities, including open conifer forest at high elevation and in ponderosa pine zone, logged areas, farm fields and grazing lands, and higher-elevation shrub-steppe. Fairly common near Cascade crest in southeastern King County, where nests in snags. Two "possible" records from moderate elevation in western Cascades, both well outside predicted range mapped by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997). Species regularly occurs in westside lowlands in migration, so these birds may have been transients.
