    Sora out of place (Porzana carolina)

    Caught this little guy/gal in the backyard at my parents new house in my town. Their new house sit just across the street from a wet lands preserve so this little one most have been searching for food in the tall grass.



    My source: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Sora/id

    Porzana carolina ORDER: GRUIFORMES FAMILY: RALLIDAE

    A small, secretive bird of freshwater marshes, the Sora is the most common and widely distributed rail in North America. Its distinctive descending whinny call can be easily heard from the depths of the cattails, but actually seeing the little marsh-walker is much more difficult.
