I took a shot of this bird yesterday in Hilton Head Island, SC.  I think it could either be a Veery or Bicknell' thrush, but can't determine.  For me, thrushes are the hardest to ID because they all look so similar.  The bird did not have the pronounced eye-ring of the hermit so I ruled that out.  Also, did not hear it sing so that doesn't help.  Can anyone confirm what this bird is.  I have included 4 photos for ID which can help with ID.  Thanks so much.  Mary Alice
