Four taxa are involved in the species complex of Yellow-rumped Warbler (Setophaga coronata s.l.): Audubon's Warbler (S. auduboni) breeding in western North America, Myrtle Warbler (S. coronata) breeding in northern North America, Black-fronted Warbler (S. nigrifrons) breeding in northern Mexico, and Goldman's Warbler (S. goldmani) breeding in Guatemala and southern Mexico. Various taxonomic authorities classify these taxa currently as subspecies or species. Three of them occur in Guatemala. Audubon's and Myrtle warblers are winter residents and transients, and Goldman's Warbler is a resident breeding bird.
Goldman's Warbler occurs in Guatemala locally in high-elevation coniferous woodland with pines and junipers, where it can be encountered together with Audubon's Warblers in mixed flocks during the winter months.
