What bird sings 'old McDonald'???

11 years ago

I'm a life-long bird-watcher, but I'm darned if I can get an ID on who it is who sings a lovely version of "Old Mc Donald had a farm" with the 'farm' part being a nice trill, but otherwise a really close rendition...enough that my 5 yo grand-daughter could pick it out. This year, at 6, she was the first one to hear it...'Gramma, Gramma, the Old McDonald bird is back!"

I've tried really hard to spot it, the closest i can come is maybe a flycatcher? It's smaller than a robin, bigger than a sparrow,no bright colors,. with a long, kinda droopy tail...last time i saw it i thought i saw a crest, but not sure. By the time i grab my binocs, it's gone...

Any suggestions?
