Regarding recent findings of a changing White-throated Sparrow song from what we were familiar with here in Vermont, I finally was able to put a face to the 'weird' sparrow song I'd heard at Damon's Crossing the last two summers. Last year I didn't come close to finding the bird but this year I managed to get a few recordings of the song but the bird remained elusive. That is until I saw a White-throated Sparrow close to where I heard the singing. Today I was able to catch the sparrow singing this interesting song by digiscoping it from some distance. I thought the song sounded between a Song Sparrow & Lincoln's Sparrow. I posted a video at the link ( sorry for the wind interference) If anyone has any thoughts about the song they would be appreciated.
