The Painted Redstart has a limited distribution range in the United States, breeding only in Arizona, New Mexico and in the Big Bend National Park of Texas. Most of the United States’ breeding population winters in Mexico and Central America, though some birds remain in Arizona. They are birds of pine-oak woodland in foothill and mountain areas, preferring the lower slopes of shaded canyons near watercourses.
