possible thrush, southern NH
 
4 Attachment(s)
I am very new with birds, looking through a book I thought this most looked like a kind of thrush, but I'm not sure which. I'm just not aware of what to be looking for in differences. Found today in a mixed forest with lots of ponds and marshes, was not very talkative. I'm just a couple miles in from the seacoast. Any help would be greatly appreciated :) Pictures are not great but hopefully they'll do

Hermit Thrush

Looks like a Hermit Thrush. Note the contrast between greyish body and more warm brown wings and tail (most visible in the second and fourth photos.) It's also probably a little early for any other spotted thrush to be in NH.

Yup! Hermit Thrush. One of my favorites.
