Weird chipping sparrow-like Song

Recommended Posts

Heard this yesterday coming from an area next to a Marina with mature cedar trees.

It sounds like a chipping sparrow at the beginning but then does this weird end thing that I’ve never heard before. It only called a few times, and then was gone. I did see a small bird fly away that I thought looked like it could be a junco (appeared to have black on it) but I was quite far away and it was very brief. Not even sure if it was the bird singing.
Right now my only idea is an immature chipping sparrow or junco learning to sing, but I couldn’t find anything similar. 
Birdnet suggested both black-throated warblers so ??‍♂️

Thought I’d ask on here quickly just inacse it was something worth trying to find again. I didn’t hear it this morning, but I also didn’t hear it the 5 days I’ve been here before yesterday. 
Shuswap BC. (It is very hot here).

Avery's recording still does not for me, either.

Weird. When you clicked on the second one, did it say they were still processing the file? It’s fully uploaded to Macaulay now.
