To start with, Ryan, I believe there are still some Swainson's Warblers along the Buffalo River, where the old state park used to be. If not there, I suspect you would have to travel a long way south in Arkansas to get to the next breeding site. The last ones I encountered were in--I think--Grant Co.
And, if the Swainson's Warblers aren't singing, you have zero chance of encountering one. Are they still singing now? I don't know.
If the Swainson's Warblers are singing, you can hear them from 1/4 mile away.

Could you post the responses to Ryan Dziedzic here too? I wouldn't mind seeing the list of potential places to go as well.
I am a Michigan birder who be in the northwest/north central Arkansas (Bull Shoals area) during the coming week (July 3-7) and would enjoy exploring the area looking for 'southern' birds.
If anyone could provide information on potential locations/habitats for the following birds, I would be very appreciative (eBird is only so helpful in this regard). As well, if anyone is able, I would be happy to meet you and bird. Please e-mail me privately if you are able to provide information.
