This call is easy to confuse with a similar Spotted Towhee call, but there are two distinct dissonant (not harmonic) tones and less noise.

HETH about 20 feet from me, quietly singing, moving through a bay tree. Immediate variety with first song note changing pitch each time, remaining song notes plastic, making the song sound sour. Most likely a young bird. Ruby-crowned Kinglet calling at end of recording.
