Haven't been out much lately, but I was lucky to find a cooperative Sora while I was on a lunchtime walk the other day.

Great way to capitalize on the opportunity!

Thanks. I actually have shots of one from another lunchtime walk, but it was a sunny day and the shadows were harsh. I was lucky to get some clouds this time.

Thanks Peter. They don't stray far from cover, but they will often come out along an edge. This one was never more than two feet from being invisible, but I watched it for about 10 minutes.
