Locally common in irigated hayfields in northeastern Washington and at Toppenish National Wildlife Refuge in south-central Washington (Yakima County).
Good habitat in core areas of use included riparian wetlands with emerfgent vegetation, rivers, and irrigated agriculture, limited to areas with known colonies.
Bobolinks nest in loose "colonies" in Washington which is the westernmost end of their known distribution. The colony at Toppenish Nainal Wildlife Refuge is probably the westernmost Bobolink colony in North America. It was the first in Washington with confirmed nesting activity, with eggs discovered in 1977.
