New Lucy’s Warbler Nest Box Plan

In collaboration with Tucson Audubon, we have updated the Lucy’s Warbler nest box plan on our website to better reflect boxes chosen by Lucy’s Warblers in Arizona field tests. We have also removed Lucy’s Warbler from our standard “small songbird” box plan. The new plan is a species-specific design that is best suited for these small desert-dwelling warblers.

If you live in the Lucy’s Warbler breeding range, download the plan and add a nest box to your property. We invite you to report any success or failure to NestWatch. This species is a relative newcomer to nest boxes, and we still have much to learn about how they fare in human-altered environments. Learn more about Tucson Audubon’s efforts to help the species here.
