Saw this guy hopping in and out of the woods by the side of the road at the Edwin B Forsythe Reserve in NJ. Possibly some sort of thrush? It was hard to get a good look at him, as he was very skittish. He had pinkish legs. Sorry for the bad photo, we had to take it through the windshield of our car.

I agree that it's a Hermit Thrush. You can tell by the combination of a grayish back and rusty tail. Also, Hermit Thrush is the only Catharus thrush that winters in this area.
