Perhaps it was a European Starling?? They come up with the craziest combinations of whistles, notes, etc. I have even heard them sing octaves! They also are excellent mimics, around here they mimic the calls of Killdeers and Black-capped Chickadees.
I hope this helps,

You are welcome. I actually have used a varied thrush soundbyte in one of my ranger programs when talking about Pacific Northwest forests. It is the only animal in my slide show that I talk about by its sound, never showing a picture. It also makes a prominent appearance in one of Glacier National Park's eHikes, the Trail of the Cedars "Power Hike", which you can access from the bottom of this page: http://www.nps.gov/g...edia/ehikes.htm The varied thrush is on slide 6.
