The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Shy Albatross is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
Most migration of this species is east of the Rocky Mountains. It is a rare winter migrant to coastal California. It breeds in the Yukon and all across Canada. Nests are found on the ground, but this bird generally feeds high in trees. This warbler species is a casual fall migrant to Washington, an accidental spring migrant east and west. One long-staying Audubon winter sighting was reported from Satsop in Grays Harbor County.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
