    Equipment Note

Soft, poorly-formed fall-type songs from at least one individual. Did not appear to be a juvenile, but I did not get a great look at it. I associate this type of song with immature birds learning their songs, but they may be representative of adult birds practicing in the off season as well. In any case, a common sound in the late summer and fall in this area.
