I took this photo in Laurel, MD this morning.  I have a hard enough time ID'ing birds when I can see their heads.  Maybe a Hermit Thrush?  Thanks for the help.

I think this is a Veery. I'm not seeing olive flanks, and I'd expect to be able to see some spotting on what's visible of the breast if it was a Swainson's/Gray-cheeked. Plus the tip of the bill is very light, and Veery tends to have a lighter colored bill overall.

Yes, that makes for sense. I's just duller than any Veerys I've ever seen
