Could this be a Chestnut-sided Warbler? "pleased, pleased, pleased t' meet
Or a MacGillivrays? 3 high, 2 low "sweeter, sweeter, sweeter, sugar, sugar"

MacGillivrays is more of a skulker in low brush.

Hi Obol,

While birding County Highway 2-22 (Bullard Canyon Rd.) in Lakeview, Lake
County, I came across a bird call that stumped me. The bird stayed low in a
shrub the whole time. It was a rolling call with two end notes, repeated
over and over. The voice reminded me of a Yellow-rumped Warbler. Even though
I don™t think of YR Warblers as staying low, it occurred to me it might be a
youngster who didn™t know any better. And, he is now independent and
practicing his singing lessons.

If it isn™t a Yellow-rumped Warbler, I would very much like to know what it
