Hi Geoff,
Another species to consider is Vesper Sparrow. Your call has the hockey stick 
start to the spectrogram that is typical for Vesper and separates it from 
At 74ms it is long for a Clay-colored.

Subject: [nfc-l] Clay-colored Sparrow? southwestern Pennsylvania

Hi all,
I recorded the attached clip in the early morning hours 11 October here in 
southwestern Pennsylvania. 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 
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.
