This large wren prefers cholla cactus in which to their nest. The nest is built by both sexes is a bulky mass of weeds, grass, twigs, lined with feathers, animal hair, plant down. The nest is shaped like football lying on its side; entrance at one end, with a narrow tubular passage leading to nest chamber. While the female is incubating the eggs, the male will often build additional nests to serve as decoys.
