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.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
The Black Turnstone is seen in Washington in winter only. It winters on the rocky coasts all the way from Alaska down to the west coast of Mexico and Baja California. It is also seen in summer throughout most of its wintering range. It breeds in coastal Alaska and on nearby islands.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
