Hi Geoff, >From my perspective, I wouldn't rule out White-crowned Sparrow for this call. It begins to rise quite quickly, it's a bit long in length and low in frequency for Clay-colored Sparrow.

It looks and sounds like a pretty good candidate for Clay-colored Sparrow, which would be quite rare here and also represent a first for my location. Are there any other more likely possibilities I might be missing? It was a warm night so unfortunately there is a lot of cricket noise, but the higher frequencies are fairly clean and can be isolated, at least. Thanks very much, hope everyone is having good listening this fall.
