While birding Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee this morning it was a nice surprise to see a Sora. This juvenile bird was feeding along the rocks and in the water at one of the detention ponds. It gave nice views for a few minutes and then a gull flew over head just above the cattails and the Sora darted into the cattails a couple of feet away. The gull was probably just looking for crayfish. I could just see the Sora standing in there on a little flat stick. One safe haven in the whole area of cattails for this little one to rest and sit out of sight. It remained in there for minutes just looking around, preening and I left. It was a beautiful morning out with perfect temps with a slight breeze, partly cloudy. No other birds to note at the park. Images were taken on September 5, 2019.
