Yep- C Yellowthroat. I too have been confused by this song which I have heard at least once a season, including this year, for several years in Coos County. I usually try and track them down anyhow and they always have been yellowthroats. Gets you excited for sure though! Great you got a recording.
Happy birding, Tim Rodenkirk Coos Bay
