The more I think about it, the more I wonder if it was a pair of towhees. But in the top of the trees? And that explains the trill, kinda, but the buzz? I just don't know.

Two days ago I was grading papers in the late afternoon on my deck when I heard two different birds high in the piny treetops singing back and forth to each other.

The song had two parts: a wren-like buzz followed by a considerably higher junco-like trill, steady with no OCW type trailing off. Any ideas? If it was just one I'd write it off as some aberrant song, but they both clearly were singing from the same score.
