Agree with Alex and would add that it sounds like a female adult American Robin, who is much lighter than the adult male counterpart. Gray upperparts are also much lighter but it's the breast/belly underside that can be faintly orangey to almost gray-white in appearance. I've had females in our yard that at first glance I thought were Townsend's Solitaires, they had so little orange on the underside!
