Robin, I love that juvie catbird shot. I've banded a lot of catbirds, including a lot of juvies, and you captured their demeanor perfectly!
One of the birds I got a lot of pics of in Alaska was the Orange-crowned Warbler. These were all the brighter yellow lutescens subspecies. And in a few of the images I managed to actually capture the orange crown, which I have only seen once before. It's one of those field marks that works if you have shot a bird and have it in your hand; it's pretty useless for IDing free-living individuals!
