Over the course of this season I've heard several calls that I  just can't 
identify for sure. A lot are incidental, heard once or twice and  gone, But 
some, like this one, I hear over and over. The bird was in  the same area 
for several weeks, at least. Sounds similar to a couple of birds  but not 
close enough that I have any confidence that I'm right. The two I  can think of 
are Magnolia and Hooded Warbler. Magnolia is fairly plentiful in  the 
general area; I've never seen or heard a Hooded. Habitat would be ok for  either 
one, and the call seems to be consistently coming from the ground or very  
close to it. I have recorded the song several times, but when I play it back 
to  the bird it immediately moves 200 feet away. And yet it's not shy - I 
recorded  this from the road and it was apparently very close, even though, 
once again,  I've never seen the bird or even a movement. Got any ideas?
