Sora, heard more often than seen. The rest of the photos are of the Virginia Rail.

Virginia Rail Day at Estero Llano Grande
I had good intentions on going on the Butterfly Walk at Estero on Friday. But then word spread that it was a Rail Day instead. The group that were butterflying was too large for our liking and the thought of seeing a Virginia Rail to enticing. Sue and I stayed on the boardwalk and NE edge of the pond by the visitor center waiting. Our patience paid off big time. Six Soras were coming in at out of the reeds as was the timid V Rail for 20 seconds. That was enough for a great look or photo op.
