Distribution and Habitat Requirements
The Okanogan Highlands ecoregion was the only ecoregion excluded. The Western Hemlock and Interior Douglas-fir zones were marginal. All zones beneath those two were core. Lakes, marshes, rivers and riparian areas were good habitats throughout the zones. In western Washington and the Southeast Cascades, grasslands, shrub savannas, shrublands, tree savannas, hardwood and hardwood/conifer forests, irrigated agriculture and low density development (including parks and golf courses) were considered suitable if appropriate micro habitats existed. In eastern Washington and all marginal zones, non-forested and conifer forested habitats were excluded.
