Bob Archer is correct. This definitely sounds like a MacGillivray’s. The bird sounds like it is close to the ground, which would be atypical for a singing Hermit. Hermit Warblers have a much buzzier high-pitched song that usually ends with two emphatic zee-zee type notes at the end. They are treetop singers.

while walking the Trillium Lake (Mt Hood) loop on 7/9, heard an unfamiliar birdsong very close, recorded two short audio/videos, but could not see the bird. have been listening to some possibilities, and seems closest to some recordings of Hermit Warbler, looking for either confirmation or other ideas, also saw many hundreds of butterflies (California Tortoiseshells are on the move again), thanks for any help, if interested google photo link
