Occupies arid montane scrub, desert scrub, thorn-scrub grassland, semi-arid brush, and semi-humid Polylepis-Gynoxys woodland. Generally occurs on more open habitat than Pied-crested (Anairetes reguloides) and Black-crested (Anairetes nigrocristatus) tit-tyrants, and in less humid regions than Tufted Tit-Tyrant (Anairetes parulus) (2).

The elevational range in Peru primarily is 1900-4100 m (15), but locally almost to sea level, on lomas and in river valleys, in central and southern Peru (perhaps during the nonbreeding season).
