The Lucy’s Warbler is one of only two North American warblers that nests in cavities. (The Prothonotary Warbler is the other.) Unlike many cavity-nesting species, Lucy’s Warblers have not been commonly known to use nest boxes, although some experimental work shows that they may use artificial nest sites under appropriate conditions.
