Sora

Of the three birds in the wetlands that are considered shy and difficult to spot, the Sora is the only one that I have not seen until today. The other two, the least bittern and limpkin I have photographed before. Today I've spotted these little birds three times in three different parks!

The top photo was shot in Greencay wetlands and the second one in Wakodahathee.

 

Sora is a small waterbird about 20-25 cm (7.9-9.8 inches) long. Although common and widely distributed in North America, they're not easy to spot in thick vegetation where they like to forage. They eat seeds, insects and snails.
