Gray Catbird Dumetella carolinensis

Fairly common, but local, in dense, shrubby riparian vegetation along Yakima River and tributaries on lower east slope of Cascades, from west edge of Kittitas Valley to about Easton. BBA records offer no support for predicted range mapped along other Kittitas County streams by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997). Rare records (none mapped here) in our four-county area at higher and lower elevations outside this core breeding zone may represent migrants, as catbirds on move well into early June.
