Icterus abeillei is endemic to Mexico, and is typically found in central Mexico. Black-backed orioles breed from Durango, Zacatecas and southern Nuevo Leon in the north to Michoacan and Veracruz to the south (Jaramillo and Burke, 1999). They winter to the south of the breeding range, from the central volcanic belt (Michoacan to Puebla and west-central Veracruz) to Oaxaca.
