Historically, the Golden-crowned Sparrow is a very rare and local breeder in high, remote areas of the North Cascades; confirmed nesting has only been known from l956. Two territorial pairs found along Slate Peak Trail at Harts Pass (Whatcom/Okanogan Counties) in July l956 showed enlarged gonads when collected, indicating reproductive condition (Farner and Buss l957). A pair noted 24 June l992 at 5000 feet near Hart Lake in the Seven Lakes Basin (Clallam County) could indicate breeding in the high Olympic Mountains.
