It was, however, enough to identify it when I got back to the camper. During this past year, every time I went to a marshy birding location, I have been looking for another Sora, both to get a better view and to take a clear photograph. I finally succeeded one year later during our Christmas 2014 stay at Lake Balmorhea. After a brief glimpse of a Virginia Rail diving into the reeds of the sluice feeding into the lake, I waited for an hour to find it again. Instead, I found this Sora and followed it in the viewfinder from a distance of about 20 feet. I finally managed to get some shots of it clear of the vegetation.
