Range Description

Progne sinaloae breeds in pine-oak forest and semi-open habitat at nine sites on the west slope of the Sierra Madre Occidental. It still appears to occupy its traditional breeding range from Sonora to Michoacán, with recent records from Guerrero (Lethaby and King 2010). Breeding has been recorded historically in Sonora, Chihuahua, Sinaloa, Nayarit , Jalisco and Michoacán states, Mexico (Phillips 1986, Lethaby and King 2010); of these, it is still known to breed in Sinaloa and Jalisco (Lethaby and King 2010). It has been recorded on migration in Mexico and casually in Guatemala (Turner and Rose 1989, Howell and Webb 1995) and Belize but its wintering range, conservation status and population trends are unknown.
