Though these were taken earlier this year, very worth posting. Sora are not often seen in full view like this. What a great find. There were two individuals out this day, most unconcerned with anyone watching from the boardwalk.
Got to watch an Eastern Kingbird looking for bugs - on a beach in the metro area, instead of in a field somewhere. The bird also spent time finding and throwing some little twigs, though it never carried them away for nesting.
