Hi Kelly,
I made that comment, and you misunderstood it. Someone mentioned that they see them all the time at Ridgefield. My point was simply that as you go north from Ridgefield in Western Washington, they become much more difficult to find, thus Richard’s find in Olympia is noteworthy even if a sighting at Ridgefield isn’t. The comment was not a reference to their status and distribution in the past.
All the best,
Stephen Chase

I’ve lived in Olympia my entire life and have never seen one here. I’d say, in a David Byrne kind of way…. Rare as it ever was.
