mis-identifying birdsong

I narrowed it down to the woods warblers. I thought I hit paydirt with Swainson's warbler, but that bird does not Summer at the recording location. I gave my guess, Louisiana Waterthrush, but the fellow said that's not it. It was fascinating to try. I am not any good at birdsong, but I like to try.
