a sora

the sora is more widely distributed across the country than other rails, but are probably also the most reclusive... the birders i know speak in reverent tones of sightings where they got a glimpse of one through the reeds. i caught this one crossing a small pond at my favorite park today, right out in the open, not 25 feet away! i didn't even know they could swim! this is very possibly a once-in-a-lifetime shot for me... cropped slightly, but not much... 7D, 400mm, 1/800 @ f/5.6.

Re: a sora

Agreed, seldom heard, even rarer to actually see. Interestingly this one (male?) looks to have plumage brighter, bolder (breeding season?) than the few I've seen. Nice capture. Juanita Bay?

thanks Russ! yep, a male in breeding plumage... usually, their colors are duller. Juanita Bay Park, in the old beaver pond next to the causeway...
