I saw this conversation on the AR Bird listserv...  so I looked at the eBird report and played the file... it's weird. ebird shows it was a few days ago in Arkansas... 
I'm mixing species in my head to come up with something similar...   but rather than rack my brain I thought I'd see what you all think...

Side note... is there an easy way to get recordings from Merlin off your phone? I've found I can email the smaller ones to myself but larger files it says NO... 
Heard something odd in my yard the other day... akin to a northern waterthrush or connecticut warbler type call...  I don't even remember which day/file it was so I'll have to play them one by one and hope I hear it again. ugh... I don't want to.  HA

What kind of phone?  iPhone to Apple product you can Airdrop.  

Sound a lot like a Dickcissel, just slightly different.  

 

I was thinking the pattern sounded like a dickcissel but it's so buzzy... I was combining dickcissel and something like an indigo bunting in my head. HA... 

Android...

Android to Windows is simply a matter of connecting the phone to the computer and accessing it through the file directory, I think. Android to Mac requires a software download in order to do the same thing.

I've tried looking and couldn't seem to find where they were stored. If I find any motivation to, I'll look again. Don't feel like it right now. ha.

And someone on the list replied suggesting Dickcissel as well... such a weird sound though...

Side note... I wish they'd change the name of that bird. Not just because of the 4 letter code either... it's just a weird word that I have to think about how to spell when I'm typing it out... and feels weird to say.
HA.

Tying telling a cop that is the bird you are looking for parked at the end of a cul-de-sac with houses being built.

Always have a Field Guide in the vehicle, cause trying to show it on a phone doesn't work out that great.  He was very cool about it as he rattled off how almost all the new houses being built were someone who is/was in law enforcement.  Also talked about the birds he sees on his new property.  Definitely one of the good interactions, only had 1 that was less than pleasant.
