I probably jumped the gun on calling this a Yellow-green (it's certainly not a Red-eyed, either). The weak/plain facial pattern, apparent wing bar, and other things (the description says the iris was red, but it looks dark in the photo) suggest this is not a Yellow-green and may instead be a Bell's Vireo. Paul Lehman, at first glance, suggested that it could be an Eastern Bell's which is also a very interesting sighting for Nevada (if confirm-able) and a potential future split.
Apologies for the confusion. Still would be a nice bird for others to go refind and gain additional documentation.
