  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.
