What kind of bird is this?

I know it's a bad photo but this is the best I could do at the time. Can anyone tell what kind of bird this is? I thought it was a Western Meadowlark but the colors don't quite match up. He's showed up twice now on our back fence.

sure looks like a meadowlark to me. have you seen it in flight? meadowlarks have distinctive white outside tailfeathers. i.e. dark tail with white on the right & left edges.

Dawn thinks it is a Vitreo Thrush.

sorry it is "Varied" Thrush
