Fledgeling - Common Yellowthroat?

"Dad I found a bird!"

Right now there are many young birds fledging around our house. This one had either just fledged or was blown out of its nest by the high winds. If you look close you can see the poop still stuck to it's feet from the nest. It fluttered down on the ground while we were taking the pictures and we realized that we had to move it or it would die for sure. I put it up as high as I could reach into the oak tree where it immediately flew into some bushes on our neighbor's side of the fence. I watched and listened to it's parents taking care of it while I was chopping the plum tree down. I hope it makes it.
