Breeds in USA, western half of southern Canada and northern Mexico. Recent results suggest that at least part of the US population after having bred in early parts of summer migrates to north-western Mexico where a second round of breeding takes place before the birds go on the final migration to their winter home.
Two subspecies are recognized:
Dense brush and hedgerows.
The cup-shaped nest is hidden in thick shrubs.
