Sora Makes Itself Known

Sora from MDTOur neighborhood Sora continues to make itself visible. Chris Takacs caught the usually secretive bird this morning in the DeKorte Park Shorebird Pool from his viewpoint along the Marsh Discovery Trail. The bird is not uncommon to the region, but is a rare sight. According to, the Sora is a small, secretive bird of freshwater marshes and theĀ  most common and widely distributed rail in North America. Its distinctive descending whinny call can be easily heard, but actually seeing the little marsh-walker is much more difficult.
