Hi Mosstrooper - because it's a Catharus thrush in winter. The confusion species for Hermit Thrush are all in South America at this time of year. If the photo had been taken a month or two earlier, or 2000km further south, it would have been a very difficult one to identify on this pic alone.

Cheers Michael, thanks for the explanation.
