Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Innovative Lucy’s Warbler Nestbox Research

Lucy’s Warblers are one of only two cavity-nesting warblers in United States and a species of Conservation Concern.

Their breeding range is fairly small with the heart of it being in Arizona. This species is very understudied and previously unknown to use nestboxes, unlike other secondary cavity-nesters. Tucson Audubon has been studying Lucy’s Warbler nesting needs for the last 8 years using innovative techniques to design a nestbox style that they will readily use. Join Community Science Coordinator, Olya Weekley, to learn more about the process and what we have learned so far.
