Hermit thrush or Swainson's thrush ? (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hello !

I have some difficulty to ditinguish hermit thrush and swainson's thrush. I know their songs, but when it is only visual, I am not sure. Can some one help me with some tips for that ? In my book it is said that hermit thrush has reddish contrasted tail. Has the one in the photo an enough contrasted reddish tail to be an hermit?
Thanks a lot !
