The Elusive Sora and Virginia Rail

The Sora has got to be one of the most elusive birds to photograph.

They are found in the Cattails in the marshy areas and really come out in plain view. When they do make themselves available for a shot it is a special treat.

The Sora to the right presented itself for longer than normal and in plain view.

A few days ago I also photographed the elusive Virginia Rail. Two photos at the bottom of this article.

Why do Common Grackles have White Eyes?

I have researched and cannot find, why Common Grackles have white eyes. If someone reads this and have an answer, please email me. Apparently, the eye is not white but rather a very light yellow. It looks white in the photos in this gallery.

Flycatchers are hard to ID.

After careful examination and comparing to several books I am convinced this is an Alder Flycatcher. Plus it was photographed in Alders.

He was flying around catching flies in the evening. He then landed in a perfect location with great light.

I was ready and captured the two photos to the right.

If you disagree with my assessment, please email me.

 Low Numbers of Bobolinks 

Bobolinks numbers are on the decline in Canada.

The reason is clear. As I watched and photographed these birds. They were making their nest in the middle of a field growing hay. So, it is most likely the field will be mowed before the young are fledged.

Don't quote me on that because I have not confirmed the above situation. 

The field in question has an abundant amount of insects and it does not appear to be a field of a high yield crop, so I don't think it will be sprayed with insecticides.
