The Hermit Thrush is common at high elevations in coniferous forests, but probably less common in the very wettest forests of the Olympic Mountains.
Core zones were the Grand Fir zone and those high on the east side, and the Silver Fir zone and those higher. Mixed and conifer forests were good habitats.
Sub-specific status in Washington is uncertain. Breeding birds in the Blue Mountains undoubtedly belong to the Great Basin subspecies C.g.polionata. Those in the Cascades represent the subspecies C.g.slevini. Throughout most of Washington, the Hermit Thrush is outnumbered by the abundant Swainson's Thrush, except at high elevations in conifer forest with limited brush
