This is a Thrasher.  Curve-billed?

Hard to tell from the angle and lighting, but I think Sage Thrasher would be more likely. Looks like a juvenile, judging from the gape.

Yeah, the pale overall color combined with the bill looking pretty downcurved fits Le Conte's.

Yeah, I can see the long down-curved bill now. I can definitely see it as a Le Conte's also.

It would be nice to see the photo that is being discussed. I admit that it's pretty selfish, but I learn a heck of a lot more about the birds when I can relate the discussion I'm reading to a photo of the bird being discussed.

Agree with Stranger and Bunny.  AND, not the first time I have voiced that opinion.
