This bird very high up in Douglas fir.
[A single song-type is represented here, but it is unlike that of other recordings of this species and does not appear similar to any of the spectrograms published by D. J. Borror and W. W. H. Gunn (1985. Songs of the Warblers of North America. Cornell Lab. of Ornithology)). It was said to be an unusual variant recorded at high elevation. Quality changed from ~3 to 3-2 (excessive hiss) - CAM - 20 January 2005]
