Nesting has been documented on the mainland. The primary nesting range is on the interior side of the coast mountains.
- Summer abundance for different areas vary significantly - does this accurately reflect what's actually happening? If so, does this suggest more breeding taking place, or are these non-breeding birds?
- Less abundant on outer coast in winter? Never see more than a dozen or so combined around Sitka along road system. Apparently more common elsewhere?
- Generally more common in the north?
