Sora rail portraits

All the students had a chance to hold the Sora so they could experience firsthand where the expression “thin as a rail” originates:  rails actually show extreme lateral compression to their breastbone, presumably to aid their forays through their favored, densely vegetated marsh habitat.

Sarah, our communications coordinator came up for a day, to see what the camps are like.  By strange coincidence, she only saw us band a single bird, the Sora!  Not your typical banding event…
