There are three species of spot-breasted thrushes found in Washington. All three – the Swainson’s Thrush, the Veery, and the Hermit Thrush – have solid brownish upperparts (back, wings, and tail), light-colored bellies, whitish eye-rings, and varying degrees of spotting on their breasts. All are similar in shape to a robin, but smaller. Males and females appear similar in most species. The spots on the Swainson’s Thrush appear more faded than those of the Hermit Thrush, but more distinct than those of the Veery. Swainson’s Thrushes also have distinct buff-colored eye-rings.
