Observation details

Including 1 *beyond property boundary*; 16 singing. At 0842 I briefly heard whiny, high-pitched calls (like those recorded from WEME on previous 2 surveys) from reach 3 S of the stream: the only time I heard these calls on this survey. Around 1009, noted a WEME sang at least 3 songs from a Chokecherry just S of the constructed wetland, about 20 m from a running excavator, then it flew. By 1250, VESP and WEME singing was much decreased, but I still heard song very occasionally.
