New songbird in South Idaho


Recommended Posts

I have a new bird living by my creek this summer. Its nesting in low (8-12’ ) brush. This bird is slightly bigger than a sparrow, sits very upright on the branch, is quite drab colored. I’m never able to see it well as it stays in the brush but it looks to be mottled coloring similar to a wren. The song is amazing!! A long set of varying trills and tweets. Anyone got ideas I could look up?

This bird definitely resembles a finch in its coloring and size. But the song is totally different. More like some kind of warbler?  The song reminds me most of a yellow warbler but that’s not what this bird is, as I have those also.

Or Townsend's Solitaire?

Can you record the song?  Any smartphone should be able to do that.

I tried to attach the song here. Did it work?
