The Bank Swallow is locally common in eastern Washington in areas near water or wetlands below the lower treeline, and into the lower forest zones of northeastern Washington.
Core zones throughout were steppe, Oak, and Ponderosa Pine. Peripherally it was also found up to (and including) Interior Douglas-fir in the Cascades, Interior Western Hemlock in the northeast, and Grand Fir in the Blue Mountains. Good habitats were water/wetlands.
For the most part, Bank Swallows occur in treeless areas in eastern Washington, but they are also common along major northeastern river valleys. Bank Swallows need soft banks in which to burrow.
