Sounds like 1st year plumaged Baltimore orioles to me.......
Yellow-breasted Chats don't have wing bars

Subject: [CT Birds] American chats?

These birds must be chats, although they do not exactly fit the birdbook
description.  Small, but larger than warblers.  Brown backs, one with two
wing bars.  One with a BRIGHT yellow breast; one with a BRIGHT orange
breast.  Slow moving, in fruiting wild dogwoods.  They are not either kind
of oriole.  Book says sometimes orange breasted in mating period.  Any other
offers?  Thanks   Robley Evans   North Stonington
