This goldfinch is uncommon and very local in the State of Washington in oaks of southwestern Klickitat County.
Core areas were the Klickitat Meadow Steppe and Oak zones. Good habitats were low-density development, pastures, steppe, forest openings, riparian areas, and hardwood and mixed forests.
Washington breeders represent the northern subspecies C. p. hesperophilus. The species has been found in Washington only along the southern edge of Klickitat County, and always in association with Garry Oaks. Washington birds are at the northern limit of the species' range. It generally inhabits scattered trees, woodland edge, second growth, open fields, pastures and developed areas.
