This is a Swainson's Thrush with the buffy spectacles and grayer brown back.

Veery and Swainson's Thrush are both similar in size. Veery would show very little to no eye-ring and a warmer reddish-brown back/wings.

I was fortunate to view both species side-by-side this morning!

I also agree that size is hard to judge in this photo.
