Rare Visitor: Sora in Our Office (That’s Right!)

Here’s something you don’t see every day — a Sora making an office visit.

Don Smith, Naturalist Emeritus for the Meadowlands Commission, found a Sora in a bit of distress in a Meadowlands marsh and thought he would make a quick stop at the NJMC’s offices so bird-bander extraordinaire Mike Newhouse could band the bird before Don released it in Harrier Meadow. Which Mike and Don did, nimbly and ably as ever.

We have not had this big a celebrity in the building since Governor Kean visited a year ago, and NFL Legend Dan Marino stopped by several years back. The Sora, of course, was a bit lower in the pecking order.
