Hi Bill, 

Hermit Thrush is far and away the most likely small, spotted thrush for this time of year. 

If you get a good look, one thing to watch for is a tail that's noticeably more reddish/rusty than the back. They also make a low, soft "chup!" note, similar to Varied Thrush but a little softer. 

Almost as endearing as bluebirds!

Hi folks, 

Happy MLK day! 

Hey...I saw a smallish brown thrush with a speckled breast in my backyard this morning. Any thoughts on which species this is likely to be? 
If I see it again, I'll try to get a photo.
