The Sora is a 8 inch wading bird who lives in dense waterplants. It is often heard but seldom seen. In three years of looking for it I've only seen it 3 times, two of which offered no chance of a photograph.
Yesterday, in very low light I finally got one in a semi open area. This bird is nervous, very fast and extremely skittish.

Not a great photo, but I don't believe anyone has posted a photo is this bird in quite a while. Thanks for looking.

D300s with 200-400mm with tc1.4, handheld, ISO 640, F5.6, 1/320
