Never got a good look, but small, brown and wren-like in dense reeds near brackish pond. I thought the song sounded similar to Marsh Wren. Will be trying to get a better look.

Update:Returned the following day to find the bird and here the call again. Still difficult to get a really good look (and even harder to photograph) but I'm close to sure it was a Marsh Wren.
