I used to analyze your sound file. I filtered to play the 2-syllable "do-whit" call only. A screen shot of the result is attached. The most likely is Clay-colored Thrush, among several other Eurasian species, but all are low probability. In other words, Birdnet is stumped. The other prominent call -- the higher pitched down-slurred call -- seems to be Red-wing Blackbird (also according to Birdnet).

I recorded the attached at about 8:00AM on Thursday, 7/2, in Canby.  I was never able to see the bird, which seemed to be deep in a group of curly willows.  It called continuously for several minutes.  I feel like I ought to be able to put a name to it, but I’m not having any success.  Any suggestions?  (I’m after the repeated 2-syllable “do-whit” call.)
