Hi again folks, Well I managed to sneak up on the thrush and get a few photos this afternoon, and after discussion with Jay McG I'm going to change my ID to Hermit Thrush.
A nice bird anyway, and cool to see it feeding on the cedar berries. Hope it sticks around a few more days.

The branches were loaded with berries so I filled the back of my car with as many as I could, and then set them up among the now-depleted winterberry shrubs in my backyard. This afternoon, a Swainson's Thrush, several House Finches and a couple of American Robins are eating them. Hope the thrush sticks around so I can photograph it tomorrow.
