Breeding Range Map
Bendire's Shrew occurs in marshes, swamps, wet meadows, along (mostly) slow streams: usually found near water, but up to a mile from it in wet, dense forests. Mostly found in Humid Transition zone, but commonly up to the lower Canadian zone and sometimes to the upper Canadian zone.
Core zones were all low and mid-elevation zones west of the Cascade crest except Lava Flows, which were excluded. Silver Fir was peripheral. East of the crest, Interior Western Hemlock and Grand Fir were core, and Interior Douglas-fir and Oak were peripheral.
Fresh water/wetlands were good habitats in all zones. In most of the zones, closed forest was also good.
