Fwd: VARIED BUNTING in Taylor (Navajo Co.)
I’m forwarding this for Nick and Connie Worth:

Greeting Birders,

 
Connie and I found a male Varied Bunting today in Taylor, AZ. Eric Hough verified the bird’s ID from the diagnostic photos I supplied. This is believed to be the first Navajo County record for this species, as well as for the northern half of the state and the Colorado Plateau.
 
On a personal level, this is a life bird for us, as well as a Navajo County bird and year bird.
 
I’m sharing this report here at Eric’s suggestion so that other Northern AZ birders can “... be on the lookout for more spring overshoot VABU’s as they arrive in the state.”
 
Good Birding,
Nick and Connie Worth

The bird was not found again during the two days following the first observation.
