What is it? Very young Orange-crowned Warbler

Now that someone has correctly identified this newly fledged chick, I'm putting the name here. Actually, I'm not sure if it qualifies as a fledgling, but it was not in the nest when I found it hidden in a Scotch Broom bush. Location? In western Yamhill Co., Oregon, at about 700 ft. elevation in the foothills of the Coast Range. It is about two inches in length, beak to tail.

Always a challenge when dealing with such young birds, but perhaps a Common Yellowthroat?

How about an Orange-crowned Warbler?

I never would have identified it. Fledglings have been really testing my abilities this year.
