I was at Great Pond State Forest in Simsbury this evening and I watched a
solitary sandpiper feeding.  It seemed to have a serious tremor in its
legs.  Is that a method of scaring up prey?  I have never seen this before.

Also saw:
2 green herons,
3 canada geese
3 wood ducks
2 flickers
1 belted kingfisher
1 eastern kingbird
3 ravens
4 black ducks
5 chickadees
2 downy woodpeckers
1 flycatcher ?sp.
