Sora

While out on the pontoon we found several sora rails including this immature bird.
Sora can be hard to find and worse to photograph.


Porzana carolina

Animals that are commonly reported as sora food items include snails, crustaceans, spiders, and insects, mainly beetles, grasshoppers, flies, and dragonflies.
 Soras often eat the seeds of plants, such as smartweeds, bulrushes, sedges, and barnyard grasses and seeds of annual wildrice.
