Range Description

Xenotriccus mexicanus is found in the interior of south-western Mexico from central Michoacn and Morelos to Oaxaca (Howell and Webb 1995). Reports from Laguna del Tigre National Park and southern Petn, Guatemala, are thought to be erroneous (Eisermann and Avendao 2007). It is common at Monte Albn, Oaxaca, in summer, but rare or absent in winter when birds may migrate into the Balsas drainage (Howell and Webb 1995). It is also reported to be common during summer in scrub and oak woodland around Oaxaca city and in Tehuacan Cuicatlan Biosphere Reserve, ranging north of Cuernavaca (M. Grosselet in litt. 2010).
