Nice shot, John. I really like the rail family. I've never seen a Sora out in the open like that. When I have seen them they are always skulking around in the marsh vegetation.

I never saw one in the open either. Thanks for posting.

---Thanks Landy and Allan. This is the first time I saw this guy out in the open as they are always on the fringes. When they do cross the pond it is usually in a running/flying motion over the water surface.

---Maybe if I put things into perspective - this is not a large body of water and it decided to cut off the corner and decided to swim. I was fortunate enough to be there. The pond was maybe 30Ft. long and maybe 10Ft. in width.

Nice shot. I saw one of these alive for the first time two days ago. Hard to find birds, especially out in the open like this.

---Thanks very much Robert - what looks like open water can be a little misleading. This Sora crossed a pond that was approx approx 20' wide and I was at the right place at the right time. Moved very fast
