Here's a video I took of a Hermit Thrush doing a little dance - the debated foot quiver/shake: http://ctaudubon.blogspot.com/2011/10/hermit-thrush-foot-quivering.html

And more from Stratford...

 From Scott Kruitbosch & Twan Leenders:
10/17/11 - Stratford, Stratford Point -- 1 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL, 1 Great Cormorant, ~70 Sanderling as their numbers increase, 1 Northern Harrier patrolling the grasslands all day. Still plenty of songbird migrants coming through like today's mix that included Hermit Thrush, Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrow, Eastern Phoebe, Palm Warbler, Savannah Sparrow, Song Sparrow. The sparrows are still coming in the dozens and will for another week or two. I'm hopeful for more Vesper or Grasshopper like last year.

Another turbulent week of weather on tap with a nice Tuesday, an east flow and heavy rain Wednesday, then more big time gusty southwest flow. Keep watching.
