Observed a female doing a Killdeer-like "broken-wing" routine on 7/1/12 in Litchfield, CT. The female got down on her side, began moving around in a circular motion, and flapped one wing in the air. This behavior has been observed elsewhere: http://www.ttpbrs.ca/2009/05/weekly-update-may-23-30.html
