Swainson's thrushes?

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm which thrushes they are? Three different birds, pictures taken last week in northern New Jersey. I think they are all Swainson's, but would like to confirm. Thrushes are hard!

Complete buff eye rings connected to buff supraloral bar creating spectacles -- unmatched in any other Catharus. Also, the lateral throat stripes are nearly always paler than black, often obviously brown. That rules out Hermit and Gray-cheeked.
