Hi,
My last class of the semester was yesterday so I finally had time to get out
and do some birding for the first time this spring. I wandered our farm last
night and this morning and managed to find some pretty good birds.  One
interesting bird I noticed looked like a Blue-Winged Warbler but it sounded
almost like a Prarie Warbler (A rising buzz similar to the Parula but
without the sharp ending)  It was definitely not the usuall beee-buzz that
BWWA's usually make.  Has anyone heard this before?

Complete list of birds is as follows (higlights are in bold):
