As of this afternoon, there is an adult male PAINTED BUNTING on the Jean Lawn Patch off the I-15 about 20 min outside Vegas. This stunning bird was seen in the grass closest to the Shell Station amongst some Lesser Goldfinches and Savannah Sparrows. Unmistakable.
The Jean Lawn Patch is off the Jean exit near the Goldstrike Casino on the 15 Interstate going South. It was quite birdy there actually. I also observed a female Lawrence's Goldfinch in amongst the Lessers. It's distinctive bell or tink like flight call helped me pick it out of the flock.
