hermit thrush or veery? NYC

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the beginnings of Spring migration.

I have two photos of what I think is a Hermit Thrush and Veery . Usually I feel confident about spotting difference between veerys and hermit thrushes but I was  recently told to correct an ebird submission. 

Photo 1. I think is a hermit thrush. The angle isn't helping but to me the tail looks redder than the body.

Photos 2 and 3:   Veery - eye ring is more distinct at the back of the eye.

Thank you for your help!
