What bird sings a loud song, 6 notes, first note low, next high, then a note in between 1st and 2nd notes that repeats 4 times. My neice said she hears it in Delaware and ive heard same in NC but have no idea what bird.

Baltimore Oriole?

Can you describe the tone?  Buzzes, squawks, shrill, thin, clear, flute-like?

Of course the best thing to do is make a recording.  A smartphone or a camera with video capabilities is often good enough.

Thanks so much for your help, AV and Jerry. Yes, I listened to a song sparrow online before I posted and that was the closet I could find. The bird I remember didnt sound as sweet though. No trills , buzzes or flutes, just a loud clear sound....over and over and over.  I havent heard it in awhile in my yard but i'll be sure to record it next time and post the sound here. Thanks again.

I'm in agreement with psweet as it possibly being a White-throated Sparrow.  And, depending how far South you are, it could be you haven't heard it in awhile because they go North in the Spring (depending where you live, of course). Of course, I could be wrong though. :lol:
