Breeding Range Map
The green area shows the predicted habitats for breeding only. The habitats were identified using 1991 satellite imagery, Breeding Bird Atlas (BBA), other datasets and experts throughout the state, as part of the Washington Gap Analysis Project. Habitats used during non-breeding months and migratory rest-stops were not mapped.

This species is common in almost all habitats throughout the state except large dry and cultivated fields and alpine rocks/ice. In agricultural areas, Robins can be found where trees occur, especially around towns, farmhouses, or wetlands.

All zones except Permanent Ice/Snow were core; estuarine mud flats ;bare ground; sparse vegetation in steppe; grassland, shrub savanna, shrubland, and non-irrigated agriculture in steppe zones; high density development; and mid-to-large-seral conifer forests in wet, west-side forest zones.

The American Robin is perhaps the most ubiquitous bird in Washington. It can be found breeding in almost any habitat in the state, with the exception of dense rain forests, non-vegetated glaciers and rock, and intact sagebrush tracts.
