Hermit Thrush

Catharus guttatus

This species is found occasionally during the spring, mostly during late May (though there are records from mid-May to early June) with a single outlier summer record from mid-July that is likely to be of a failed breeding bird. It is a nearly annual migrant in the fall from late August through mid-October. It is found most reliably from September 10th-25th, which is later than the other species of this genus are generally found.
