Non-Migrant: No. All populations of this species make significant seasonal migrations.
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make local extended movements (generally less than 200 km) at particular times of the year (e.g., to breeding or wintering grounds, to hibernation sites).
Locally Migrant: Yes. At least some populations of this species make annual migrations of over 200 km.
Migrate later than other warblers, arriving in Arizona in early April, in Nevada and Utah in late April/May. In Arizona, males establish breeding territories in May. Possibly disperse to lower elevations after breeding and before migration. Fall migration from mid-August to early Mexico, passing through southern mountains of Arizona and New Mexico, Trans-Pecos region of Texas, and Sierra Madre de Occidental and Central Plateau in Mexico (Martin and Olsen, in press). Occur in mixed species flocks after breeding season (Fischer 1978, cited in Martin and Olsen in press).
