I recorded a mysterious birdsong the other day that I think may have been an
aberrant PIWA but am just not sure. There were PIWAs singing all over the
place, some fast and some slow and on the same pitch, some going down in pitch
but none so staccato nor ascending in pitch as this one. Incidentally he was
hanging out in PIWA territory--at the top of pine trees (which weighs against
swamp sparrow, as does the change in pitch)--so I could never get a glimpse.
Thoughts? (turn your volume all the way up)

The fence lines and brushy areas along the Shirley Plantation entrance road are
a pretty good place to find them. This is the road that leads west from 156
(Roxbury Rd). It is labeled in Google Maps as Westbury Farm Rd.
