Painted Redstart in the Allen Canyon (Mission Hills) refound

HI, all.  It took over an hour in the area of the cactus patch where Nathan French found this bird yesterday, but I finally came up with it shortly before noon today.  The patch is prickly pear (I think), and is towards the northern end of the trail on the western slope.  You'll know when you're there.  Poor ID photos obtained and viewable in this checklist:
