Adult male flying over. I think I got audio, but I'm going to have to search for this. I think it's in one of the waterthrush or black-throated blue cuts; I'll post a link as soon as I can.

UPDATE. Okay, I got it. It's pretty poor, but I think probably adequate for documentation purposes. You can hear a flight call at the beginning, then another about 8 or 9 seconds in, as the bird passes over, calling. Here: https://soundcloud.com/ted-floyd/eabl-poor-just-documentation
