Lucy’s Warbler Nestbox Cam

Update: All 5 Lucy’s Warbler chicks have fledged the nest! We wish them well in the big new world. This nestbox may or may not get used for a second clutch this year.

Lucy and Lucky are a pair of Lucy’s Warblers nesting in a yard in Central Tucson. This is encouraging to see as we hope to create more nesting habitat in urban areas with addition of nestboxes. What you will see is an experimental replicate with three boxes: small triangle, pvc pipe and a large triangle at the forefront. The Lucy’s Warbler focus group has chosen our most popular design: the large triangle. This is the first year we get to watch them so intimately! They are a shy species so we are learning a lot about them with the use of cameras

Enjoy!
