Bird in the Woods

Bird in the Woods

Oct. 16, 2017, driving through the woods on the Ridgefield NWR auto tour, when I spotted a small bird fly into a small bush just off the road.  I backed up to see if it was still there–it was.  I had a very small opening in the bush to shoot through but I was able to get the whole bird.  It was quite dark in the shade of the forest so I had no idea what species the bird was.  Checking the field guide it looks like a Swainson’s Thrush.  Bird ID experts, please let me know if this is incorrect.
