Possible INDIGO BUNTING at Paso Picacho?

Good morning!  I'd been told that an INDIGO BUNTING was singing at the Group Campground at Paso Picacho campground in Cuyamaca State Park on May 10 by the birder working on the Cuyamaca reforestation project (I think I have that right!).  I didn't find it on my subsequent visits.  But this Wednesday, June 6, I was recording what was a new song to me (well, most are!) when a slender blue bird flew out of the pines and into a distant shrub.

I put my recording with notes on the checklist below under Lazuli/Indigo Bunting.  Any help is appreciated!

The Group Campground is easily reached from the Paso Picacho campground by walking the road (there's signage) from the main parking lot. You might be able to drive it but the Group Campground is closed and I can't remember if that parking lot is gated!
