Veery or Thrush and if Thrush then what kind?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Took pictures of this guy in Dover NH.

Looking at Hermit Thrush, Wood Thrush and Verry, I see that Hermit is not as red on the back of the body, but Wood thrush has spots all the way down. It makes me think it is Verry. What do you guys think?

Here are the shots:

it is the same bird, just changed branches.

 

Thank you!

You're aware that a Veery is a species of thrush, right?

No, I was not, I am a noob 🙂 but they visually do look alike

So, you also think it is Veery?

I'm not making that call.  For the moment, let's leave it for those who have seen more thrushes than I have.

This is a Hermit Thrush.

Are you sure? According to https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Hermit_Thrush/id Hermit is dirty brown on the back and only reddish on the lower back.
I also took this shot on the other day in a different location, see below. And I have no doubt it is Hermit, but I am not sure those two pics above are Hermit.image.thumb.png.4dc85c38cd49cea94fc11d8498d9dc9b.png
