Sora

August 11, 2016

The hot weather has dried up the ponds making it easier to see birds that are normally hidden in the cattails. As the water recedes they are forced to dart out of hiding in a search for food. Here is a photo of a Sora, a rail that is normally content to feed "undercover" and is rarely seen. But the pond at Hartrick Park is almost dry and tonight I caught it darting in and out of the cattails in search of food. Take some time to visit a neighborhood park pond in the early morning or late evening and see if you can catch a glimpse of wildlife that isn't usually so easy to see.
