i agree with the Yellowthroat diagnosis.
Below is an email I sent to Nick this morning after sending him one last
night with the wrong jpg.

Hey Nick- Correction!!!
It was late last night and I just realized that I pasted your recording
into the jpg twice. That's why it sure looked like yours was a Yellowthroat.
I've fixed it now, and I still think it's a variation on Common
Yellowthroat, but certainly not an exact match!

Notice how Yellowthroat has 3 peaks while ovenbird has two. Small, Small,
Big; vs. Big Big
And all of this is based upon my thinking it was a Yellowthroat from the
start, then checking Maccaulay; not randomly searching through Macaulay
