Indigo Bunting / Chipping Sparrow Behavior

How does one ever tire of the vibrant deep blue plumage of the Indigo Bunting? It is an awesome bird to see and to photograph. (left click to enlarge)

This Chipping Sparrow's behavior was most bizarre today. It stretched its left wing and tilted his head to the right. It was in some sort of trance or a seizure for at least a minute. It appeared it was going to pass out and fold up on the spot. (left click to enlarge)

After about a minute it perked up. It lifted its head, looked around and took off like nothing was wrong. Has anyone ever observed this behavior? What is this about? (left click to enlarge)
