Brewer's Sparrow Spizella breweri

In our area, found only in Kittitas County where common in shrub-steppe at low to moderate elevation. Generally most abundant in healthy tracts of big sagebrush with native bunchgrass groundcover. Predicted breeding range northward along Columbia from Vantage to Chelan County, mapped by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997), not confirmed by BBA records. Gap report also extends core breeding range to include north and west edges of Kittitas Valley, but this prediction only weakly supported by scattered records at "possible" level.
