Lucin, a small settlement that served a stretch of the Southern Pacific Railroad that is now abandoned is a west desert oasis sometimes referred to as a “warbler trap.” At first glance Lucin looks like a small pond with some surrounding trees, but it is much more, especially during spring and fall migrations with more than 100 species recorded at the site. Look for Northern Mockingbird, Eastern and Western Kingbird, Lark Sparrow, Northern Flicker, as well as common Utah migrants, including American Redstart, Northern Waterthrush, Northern Saw-whet Owl, and Scott’s Oriole. Habitat includes a water impoundment with trees and desert shrub. Fall brings many uncommon Utah migrants. Best visited during spring and fall.
