  1. The photos were taken this morning in Chapel Hill, NC.  This bird, which is a very young bird was hiding in the brush near where I was trying to get photos of some other birds.  It was chirping off and on and keeping very still.  I actually got very close to it and although it looked at me, never budged from it's spot.  I felt I could have reached out and picked it up, but I would never do something like that.  Anyway, I first thought it was a Common Yellowthroat, but it obviously (to me) isn't.  There were several Orchard Orioles in the area, and I thought it was a fledgling Oriole.  The bobbed tail was interesting, not sure if that's normal for a fledge or if it already lost some tail feathers.
