Black-crowned Night-Heron Nycticorax nycticorax

No BBA records for Kittitas County, although projected to breed there along Columbia River by Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997). Single BBA record in Island County at northeastern tip of Camano Island (T32N R3E S22), derived from report of juveniles observed in nesting colony several summers running through 1990, provides only known breeding record for western Washington. Accepted by Smith et al. (1997), but lack of supporting details constrains us to treat it as hypothetical ("possible," not "confirmed"). Several small Black-crowned Night-Heron winter roosts well documented close by in Snohomish and Skagit Counties over last twenty years.
