Seen in Chapel Hill, NC this morning.  The bird had a fairly pronounced reddish hue to it, when I first saw it I instantly thought it was a Veery.  I stalked it for a while trying to get a decent photo of it.  I'm posting two photos, one fairly decent and the other not so much, but shows a bit more of the throat.

I'll mention that about two minutes after I took the last photo of the bird I came across what I was 100% sure was a Swainson's Thrush and it had a much duller brown color to it.

Yes, definitely a Veery with the gray face, light reddish-brown back, and light brown throat and breast markings.

I agree with a Veery. It's not too surprising to find two Catharus thrushes close together. In fact, today morning, I saw a Veery a minute after seeing a Swainson's.

Thanks!  Not a bird I see very often in the neighborhood, good score.
