Haven't seen it posted here yet, but Sara Shane discovered and well photographed a state first Yellow-eyed Junco at Scott State Park yesterday afternoon (https://ebird.org/checklist/S75759615). I can't really overstate how unprecedented this find is, it's well over 400 miles past the closest vagrant sighting of this SE Arizona Chiricahua specialty and by far the northernmost record ever. Certainly on equal levels with the Piratic Flycatcher that showed up there a few years ago. I have not heard any reports from people trying to refind it today.
