I want to state song thrush.

Mistle thrushes are a bit more on the gray spectrum, while song thrushes are more red.
A song thrush’s tends to have more ’stripey’, arrow-shaped dots on its breast, while mistle thrushes have a dotted appearance, with apiece dot missing the sharp ‘arrow’ point like a song thrush.

The resources I have might help you out a bit more.
