Breeding Range

Yellow-billed Tit-Tyrant occurs from northern Peru, south to central Argentina, reaching as far as Chubut Province in the southeast. In Peru, ranges from Piura south through interAndean valleys (such as the valleys of the Marañón, Huallaga, Apurímac, and Urubamba rivers) to Cusco, and along the west slope of the Andes from Ancash to Tacna. The distribution continues through Bolivia (La Paz to Tarija) and in Argentina from Jujuy to Buenos Aires, south to northern Chubut.

Nonbreeding Range

Southernmost birds in Argentina migrate north, reaching Buenos Aires, Entre Ríos, and Santa Fe.
