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.

The Sky Lark is locally common in open grasslands at American Camp on San Juan Island (San Juan County).

No habitat has been modeled. This speciesŐ common name was formerly Eurasian Skylark; it was changed in l995 to maintain consistency with British nomenclature (AOU l995). The Washington population is small.
