Sept. 13, 2020.  Central Lexington County, central SC.  Open edge of dense mixed woods  on either side of clear creek that drains adjoining athletic fields.  Bird was only visible for a few seconds, landing briefly on open branches about 20 feet up.

My first thought in the field was Yellow Warbler, but I didn't see any streaks.  Looking at the photos, I now see dark legs and feet.

My second thought was Orange-crowned butWarbler Guide shows them dark under the tail, and this bird is clearly white.  It also looks too brightly colored for OCWA to my inexperienced eye, but I've only see them one other time.
