Ovenbird

Bird was in a chase with a similar-sized bird (might there be two??) Alighted briefly on a downed branch and then took off and I was unable to relocate. I could not see the front of the bird from my vantage point, but I saw a bird the size of a large warbler with solid olive back (no wing bars, uniform color through back and tail), and an erected tawny-orange crown patch (the bird was agitated from the chase) that I am confident was this species. Ovenbird was a breeding yard bird for me in NH, and although it is a skulker far more often heard than seen, I had many occasions in 16 years of living there to observe this species -- even to see it with the crown erected during altercations.

Bird was seen approx. 150 yards N of the two memorial benches on the river size of the trail. I wonder if this could this possibly be the same bird Terry and I found further south on the trail closer to Clark's Crossing back on 12/15/16?? (S33031878)
