This morning, and for 3-4 days prior, I've been hearing common yellowthroats singing in the woods behind my house (Salmon Creek Valley, Lansing). In past years, they've also arrived on the early side, yet hearing one singing by (or before) April 20th seemed a little odd. But this morning, the bird was right outside my bedroom window, and very loud. I checked it against the song on eBird (first recording on the list) and it was identical--basically counter-singing to what was outside. I'm 100% sure on this one.
