Gray-cheeked Thrush?

Recommended Posts

I took these pictures at Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas on May 8 (yes, four months later I am still going through pictures from my cross country drive). 

It was dusk when I took these and the bird was backlit, so the lighting is poor.  I see a hint of lighter colored lores, so my first reaction was it is a Swainson's Thrush.  However, looking again, I don't see a hint of buffy wash on its face, throat or breast (although that might be a result of the poor lighting).  Now I'm wondering if it might be a Gray-cheeked Thrush?  Maybe the lores are just a bit worn?

Thanks in advance!
