Observation details

Near the wet spot on trail 3 before you get to the river. Same area had a common yellowthroat female, multiple goldfinch, a field sparrow and 2 snipe. Brief view at 25 feet of this bird. it did seem to respond to a playback of Nelson call which we played two times in a 30 minute period. One observer thought he heard it repeat the call after the first playback when it popped up for a look then went back into bushes. The bird displayed to our view the gray triangle fieldmark below the eye, which is obscured in the hasty photos. On second playback, around half an hour later, a bird moved from one bush to another about 40 feet away but we were not able to positively ID that bird.
