Figure 1. Distribution of the Mountain Bluebird.

Note that in areas where the species is shown as occurring year-round, individuals are found locally at the higher elevations from very early spring through summer and into early fall, and in the lowlands during the rest of fall and the winter. Note also that the distribution of the species in the non-breeding season is poorly described and is known to vary substantially from year to year.
