Thank you to those who tried to decipher my crummy description of the bird
call in question on the Smarty Creek trail. Maxine suggested Townsend's
Solitaire,I listened to recordings and bingo. I had never heard one
vocalize before, they have always been silent when I have seen them in the
past. Not knowing what it was is no longer bothering me.

Thank you,
