mis-identifying birdsong

A musician fellow I know through the internet, Mysterybear, sent me a .wav file of a birdsong to try to identify. I tackled it using the internet and its vast resources. 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.

I handled a lot of work today, and arrived home a bit weary. The house is nearly boxed up for the next phase. It rained again today. I hope it rains tomorrow.
