That might be. I don’t have the Sibley app, I have IBird Pro and the Audubon Birds app. The latter also has a “nasal call #1” and it is close to what I heard. A little more nasal than what I heard but close. I had ruled out Eastern Towhee because the sound was “cleaner” that the towhee but maybe I was too quick to rule it out. thanks

Given the season and brevity of this bird sound you described, I would venture that it was a call, rather than song. If you have access to the Sibley iPhone app, I'd suggest you listen to "nasal call #1" for the Eastern Towhee.

I just walked in the Arboretum Trail at Pinnacle Mountain State Park. I was greeted with a "tuWee!" not a "towHee". It took about 1 second to sing with a stress on the second syllable. I'm usually pretty good with bird song but I don't recognize this one. If you have ideas I will listen to their songs and see if that was it . Thank you
