I saw the pic posted on eBird earlier (
https://ebird.org/checklist/S120329442) . It was a young American Robin
with a big eyebrow. I assume the original poster received feedback from
friends or maybe an eBird reviewer and modified their report. It is an
Actual Eyebrowed Thrush is more orange than red below, has faint
orange-brownish upperparts (not dark gray like robin), has an even bigger
eyebrow, and the white line under the eye connects to the bill gape,
imparting a very different facial expression. I think they might be a tad
smaller as well, especially in comparison with Am Robin. I've only seen
one, but I get the impression their upright stance is not as upright as Am
Robin, but a bit more horizontal.
But keep looking, it's October so anything is possible!
