Breeding Range Map
The Pygmy Shrew occurs in Washington only in the northeastern corner of the state. Throughout its range, this shrew occurs in a wide variety of habitats including hardwood and coniferous forests, marshes, bogs, swamps, meadows, clear cuts, brush, sand dunes, savannas, and parkland.
Core zones, only in the Northeast Corner Region, include Interior Douglas-fir, Grand Fir, Interior Redcedar, Interior Western Hemlock, and Subalpine Fir. Peripherally in Ponderosa Pine.
Open and closed conifer forests were good habitats in all zones except the Ponderosa Pine zone, where open conifer forest was excluded.
