The yellow bill of a Sora for Mellow Yellow Monday

What excitement and joy I felt when I first saw this Sora a couple of years ago at the Waterfowl Park in Sackville, NB. Its the delight of discovery, knowing you are looking at something you've never seen before! You can learn more about this small marsh bird by clicking here:http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Sora/id

Happy Monday to all. To view a wonderful variety of yellow-themed photos from other bloggers around the world, just click on the link below

I love your Sora pictures. I found my first one about three weeks ago at a local marsh near my home. They are such beautiful, secretive little birds.
always enjoy your blog posts.

I have never seen this bird before nor even knew the name! The beak almost seems out of proportion with the body! Very interesting post!

Beautiful bird. It is but one of the species I worry about surviving the gulf oil spill!

Excellent page! I'm so glad I found it, and will continue to visit, as you were the only page I could find to identify this cute never-seen-in-Timmins-Ontario-shorebird! My first Sora sighting! Awesome, and thank you!
