Re: Sora in Stow Lake

Despite the fact that all eBird checklists mention a single Sora at Stow Lake, there are definitely two distinct birds in the NE corner of the lake at the exact location mentioned by Kay, see another report here:

I was lucky to see one of these birds in perfect light a couple of times:

We saw a Sora nearby there last week. I think there have been other sightings as well.

Walking around Stow Lake at approximately 4pm today and noticed an unusual bird (for me). I believe it was a Sora. Location: The bird was in the northeastern corner of the lake (above the Japanese Tea Garden) in and around a large bush/tree whose branches hang into the water. This is a screenshot from Google Maps to show you the exact location. Can someone more expert than me confirm this sighting? Thank you.
