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 local and uncommon on large water bodies primarily in Grant County, specifically Potholes Reservoir, Moses Lake, ponds in the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge, and Saddle Mountain National Wildlife Refuge.

Good habitat in core areas of use included large freshwater bodies in Central Arid Steppe in and near Grant County.

Within the limited distribution in Washington, Clark's Grebe is far less common than the Western Grebe but the two speciesŐ can be found together on the large water bodies mentioned above.
