One male singing fairly constantly from several low perches in a grassy/weedy field in the preserve. Another male (not or barely audible in the first couple of segments) was singing on the other side of the trail. Partway through the cut, a female appeared and began to bring nesting material to a spot deep in a weed patch, directly below one of the males favored song perches. Quite a rare bird in this area and even more so in the summer. LNS: 125Hz AUHipass filter applied in soundBlade.
