That's strange! I've seen them before in our yard and at our feeder --
but never heard this call!

Since the callers looked sparrow-like I even checked the AllAboutBirds
site, maybe I should go through all of the Macauley lib recordings to
see if there are others that call like this -- I'm more familiar with
the high-low-mid three-note call...
