Species Code: POAU
Breeding Range Map
Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)
This species is a rare and local breeder in freshwater ponds and lake in eastern Washington. There are no recent breeding records of this type of grebe.
None of its habitats were modeled.
Horned Grebes prefer lakes with low salinity, a factor which limits their utilization of eastern Washington water bodies. The limited breeding season records are likely non-breeders. Within the BBA period, no nests were reported. Historically, this species has occasionally bred in eastern Washington at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge in Spokane County and Rock Lake in Whitman County.
