Last week I reported a swainsons warbler. I heard the bird and thought swainsons. I played the song and the bird twice buzzed me. My ears told me swainsons. I made no effort to see the bird. I knew it was early for me but I did not know that it could have been an early date record for s.c. My subsequent efforts to relocate it have failed. There is a Louisiana waterthrush on the creek so my ears may have fooled me. However the waterthrush has not responded to the swainsons call. Lewis Burke, Saluda county, s.c.
