Have you tried ruby crowned kinglet? I had someone call me and ask me
what they were hearing. It was driving her nuts.

It's been singing constantly for at least four days now, every few seconds all day long, from the top of either a huge spruce or a nearby deciduous tree. Iíve listened to every song of every bird I can think of, with no success. I've done a lot of walking around with binoculars but absolutely can't locate the bird.
