Lucy's Warbler by Joan Gellatly

Difficulty: Easy (Flat walking trails. Drive time to location approximately one hour.)

Tucson Audubon has been conducting nestbox experiments with Lucy’s Warblers (also known around here as the “Mesquite Warbler”), 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 Olya Weekley, Tucson Audubon’s Applied Conservation Project Manager and you’ll see and learn more about the nestbox program while also searching for Gray Hawks, flycatchers, Yellow-breasted Chats and fall migrants. Limited to 8 participants.
