The slight eye ring, extensive spotting below, and rufous cast to the tail look good for Hermit Thrush.

Hermit. Contrasting tail color, when present, is diagnostic.

It seems colorless and grey due to low light photography, but the eye ring is too strong (white) for grey-cheeked and the breast spots are dark, relatively cleanly-defined, and continue past the chest onto the belly; all of which are good for Hermit.
