The stunning bright Red face on this warbler immediately rules out any other warbler. Overall it has a black crown, gray back and a white rump. Male and females have similar plumage.
In the American S.E. it is a sky island dweller. It is found in dense foliage of mountainous pine oak forests in southern Arizona and New Mexico through Mexico into Central America to Honduras. It forages at all levels throughout the forest.
The Red-faced Warbler breeds in AZ and NM at higher elevations from 5600” to 9000” and nests on the ground. A short distant migrant, it leaves AZ and NM and winters in forested mountain highlands from Sinaloa, Mexico to Honduras. In Arizona it nests on the ground.
