Have a couple recordings of a bird call/song that I don't recognize, and I'm hoping someone can listen to them and recognize the caller. I've posted the recordings under 'passerine' on an eBird checklist at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S59375149.
I made these recordings yesterday (Friday, 8-30-2019) during the lunch hour at Rocky Ridge County Park in York County, near York, PA, as my wife and I ate lunch at a picnic table in a wooded area. It wasn't real close to us, so you'll need max volume. The first recording was made with my cell phone and the 2nd recording was made with my camera recorder. Seems to me that 2nd one is a bit clearer. This bird kept it up the entire time while we ate. Without any variation. It did move about, so it got a bit closer at times, and then farther away, and so on; but it never really stopped during the 45 minutes that we were there.
Unfortunately, there was no way to trek into the undergrowth to get closer for a visual.
