Here’s one for the birders…

Unidentified bird on the deck. Had the distinctive eye with the ring like a thrush, was shaped pretty much like a thrush, would generally have called it a thrush…but the breast was pale, no spots at all. The back and head were a pale grey-buff color, about the hermit thrush shade, maybe a hair lighter, shading into white underbelly. It looked almost exactly like a hermit thrush, which we get around here, but a little paler and with no breast spots at all. No stripes or bars or license plate or other distinctive markings at all that I could see (I didn’t see it in flight, just hopping along the deck for a moment.) Can’t find anything in my bird book to match it, and I’ve about given up on e-nature.

Anybody got any guesses?
