Sunday January 17, 2010 It rained all morning but cleared up for a early afternoon trip to the wetlands. “…there is a sora in the weeds just past the first gazebo…” were the first words I heard as i approached the Nature Center. I have been trying to get a decent image of this creature but had failed on each prior attempt. Finally…………

There are 2 or 3 pairs of Green Wing Teals in breeding plumage. The overcast sky prevents the display of the brilliant green – I need to get out there on a brighter day.
