Records of this bird east of the Pecos River are rare. This is a bird of moist mountain habitats, almost always found in a shady canyon with perennial water sources nearby. It prefers middle to higher elevations but may move to drier, lower elevations for foraging. Tends to move to drier areas in wet seasons and wet areas in the drier years.
