Bell's Vireo on NAU campus
Three cheers for Adam Johnson, who showed up at my office this morning with pictures of a Bell's Vireo in Sinclair Wash on the east side of NAU campus. The bird was still present in a small patch of willows immediately alongside S. San Francisco Street when I visited at around 1pm. Adam posted good pictures on eBird: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44724746

The bird is located in the green willow clump immediately south and east of the pin here:

RE: Bell's Vireo on NAU campus
Here are a couple photos of the Bell's Vireo that I managed to snag this afternoon. The combination of high wind and a very skulky bird made picture-taking a real challenge. This bird looks on the bright end of the range for the Arizona race of BEVI, and also has an impressively ratty tail.

It is still present as of 10:45. It was exactly where Jason had it. There are parking spots at the corner of Brannen and Lone Tree. Cross Lone Tree and wall maybe 2 minutes south on the Urban Trail. The willow patch is just feet fron the road. Nice find Adam!
