Dear All,

Interesting, there is a mix of opinions out there on this bird. However,
I’ve looked more closely at the local (i.e., from Mass) recordings of
Black-throated Blues, and one of the variants of their song (more common in
the NE) is a good match for this bird. Particularly the ringing quality to
the introductory notes of the 3-part song. I appreciate people’s input.
Very interesting!

All the best,
