I’ve been chasing this bird around all spring and have yet to get the glass on it. I think it may be a cardinal or oriole but can’t find anything anywhere that sounds like it! It’s bibbity bibbity bibbity boo parlevous.

Can you provide any description of the quality of the notes? Are they clear whistles, squeaks, clicks, buzzes, growls? High pitched and thin or low pitched and richly throaty? How long the typical vocalization lasts? What the spacing is between vocalizations...how many times in 1 minute or in five minute it utters the cry or song? Exactly what is the habitat like...suburban, urban, lots of trees and shrubs, just open lawns, any flowing or still water?Have you listened to audio recordings of starling songs? Try listening to a few.

I have it recorded but can’t attach it here! I can only send it to an email address. It is rural area, many trees. No way a starling. I had a glimpse and I believe either a cardinal or a Baltimore oriole. Thanks for your suggestions!
