That's interesting. I also heard one in my neighborhood in Little Washington on Saturday afternoon. Within a block of the north side of the Pamlico River. Scattered tall trees and open yards in the historic district.
I used to hear one every May when I worked at home from an apartment in downtown Raleigh and had my office window open, which looked over a large area with mature hardwood trees in a lawn. It would sing there for several days in May, multiple years in a row, and that's how I learned the Blackpoll Warbler.
