Barrow's Goldeneye Bucephala islandica

Uncommon in larger ponds, lakes, and reservoirs at moderate and higher elevations in eastern King and western Kittitas Counties. Records predominantly from Kittitas County side of crest. Generally prefers montane and subalpine lakes in forested habitats; requires cavities for nesting. Limited access to high-elevation ponds has probably led to underrepresentation of this species in BBA surveys of its core breeding area.
