Dear Skip, I wonder about the possibility of a Black-headed Grosbeak. I have been hearing them give some odd songs the past several weeks or so. They also like to sing from the tops of trees. However, from your description of the size of this bird, it was somewhat smaller than a grosbeak. Sincerely, Tim Janzen

While birding at Ridgefield NWR, I heard a song I couldn't place. I posted it as a mystery on xeno-canto, but so far no takers.
That's "www.xeno-canto.org/381431" in case the link gets garbled in translation. Weird song of an expected local or something lost? The only birds I can think of are tropical and not really candidates.
I'm wondering if this rings a bell with anyone out there in obol-land?
