About the Red-faced Warbler

Also known as: Red-fronted Warbler, American Red-faced Warbler

The Red-faced Warbler is a species of New World warbler that lives in mountainous regions of Mexico and Central America, and into parts of Arizona and New Mexico in the United States. They prefer a coniferous or pine and oak forest habitat.

Red-faced Warblers are fairly colorful little birds, named for the bright red face feathers. Males and females look alike for the most part, though females tend to be duller.
