Vermivora luciae

Length: 4 in. (11 cm)
Most often associated with mesquite trees in desert areas, the Lucy's Warbler uses cavities in tree trunks or deserted Verdin nests in which to lay its eggs. This species feeds mainly on insects, which it catches primarily by snatching them from leaves or hawking up after fleeing ones. The four-digit banding code is LUWA.
