Movement

Typically described as resident throughout its range.

Although not well documented, Karr (245) felt that Long-billed Gnatwrens (rufiventris) in central Panama were one of several species that showed local seasonal movements. Based on observed changes in abundance, he felt they were moving into more humid forest, leaving their preferred habitat of drier forest and second growth during the dry season.

Migration Overview

Resident. Nonmigratory.
