Orange-crowned Warbler nest

This nest of an Orange-crowned Warbler is situated on the ground on a sloping bank along a forest road in Yamhill County in western Oregon. The newly hatched nestlings seem to be healthy and hungry, but I'm wondering if the one seen here is actually a young Brown-headed Cowbird. (?) The nest site is in about the center of the photo below.
