Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – De Anza Trail & Lucy’s Warblers Field Trip

Over the last 8 years Tucson Audubon has been conducting nestbox experiments with Lucy’s Warblers, one of the two cavity-nesting warblers we have in the United States and designated by the Arizona Game and Fish as a Species of Conservation Concern.

The De Anza Trail in Tubac is one stretch of trail where we’ve been monitoring these nestboxes. Come explore the area with Community Science Coordinator, Olya Weekley, and Whitney Lanfranco of Leica Sports Optics. You’ll see and learn more about the nestbox program while also searching for Gray Hawks, flycatchers, Yellow-breasted Chats and fall migrants. Rose-throated Becard, whose nests look like a large football hanging from the end of a branch, have nested along this trail the past few years. A volunteer from the Tubac Nature Center will also be on the walk to share local bird and nature experience. Limited to 8 participants.


  • 6:00am – 11:30am
  • $65/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Easy (Flat walking trails. Drive time to location approximately one hour.)
