This species is found throughout the central highlands of our
region, being replaced by the similar Streak-headed Woodcreeper
at lower elevations. There is some overlap in their altitudinal
ranges, so this should not be used as an identification criterion
in itself, though a decent view of the crown is usually enough
to tell which species it is. I have seen this species in Honduras
at La Botija, La Muralla, Copan and Cusuco. I have seen them
in Guatemala at Biotopo del Quetzal and Fuentes Georginas. I
have seen them in El Salvador at Cerro Verde, El Pital and Montecristo.
