We have seen a Hermit Thrush three times in a favorite foraging spot under a Dogwood Tree (which had berries on it the first time I saw the Thrush).  It lands in the tree first, flicks its beautifully-colored tail a few times and then since there are no longer berries on the tree, goes down to the ground to hunt earthworms (which are plentiful in our yard and flower-beds.)  They also like insects and spiders.  I live in the country West of Columbia and we have lots of wooded area on our property.
