Unknown bird song from the boreal forest

Recommended Posts

Hello,

A colleague of mine recorded the attached song from the White Mountains of New Hampshire on June 18. It was within the high-elevation spruce-fir community near Mount Garfield. It's something I know I'm familiar with, but it's driving me crazy trying to figure it out! I feel like I've ruled out all of the common birds of the spruce-fir community.

Thanks so much for your help!

Doesn't really sound quite like either, but a couple of possibilities are Dark-eyed Junco and Pine Warbler.  The Juncos especially would be likely to be at high elevations this time of year.

Thanks guys! Junco was my best guess, too. I've hear them sing some strange variations of their usual trill on occasion and they are one of the most common birds in that habitat type.

Goldfinch is possible, but the notes don't seem musical enough. And I don't think any variations of the goldfinch's song or call involve repeating one note several times.
