Your bird is a Hermit Thrush. Everything fits that species - eye-ring, dark 
malar, long bill and legs. Aside from these points, the paler, bronzy panel 
at the base of the primaries - visible in your photos - is, by itself, a 
pro-Hermit Thrush feature.

I recently covered this species in the solution to a quizbird in The 
Connecticut Warbler (ref?) which has more info and detail that may be useful 
as a reference rather than re-hash it here.

Hope this helps with your uncertainty.
