These nests occurred in four habitat types: burned coniferous forest, open mature ponderosa pine forest, range land with isolated veteran ponderosa pines, and riparian cottonwood. Distribution of nests found was clumped, perhaps suggesting that preferred habitat was not randomly distributed. Nest trees were mainly burned ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir snags, large and dead veteran ponderosa pines, or live mature ponderosa pines; although western larch, black cottonwood, trembling aspen, paper birch, and utility poles were also used. Most nests were on Crown land, but in two areas (Wycliffe and Fairmont) nests were found predominantly on private land.
