Fairly drab individual singing. Photos show just enough yellow to rule out Plumbeous, I think.

Dan Kopp spotted the bird on the weedy edge of the little pond at the pump outflow near the river. If you start even with the driving range tees and walk toward the river, you should see the pond. It's just below a red bench.
The bird wasn't too cooperative, with a few partial views over a ten minute period. I managed one poor photo.

In the several brief views, the bird effectively kept some veg between itself and my camera.

One carrying food. Late breeder, but not that uncommon for this prolific species.
