The Dickcissel is named for its call: dick-dick-dick-cissel. Its breeding habitat covers much of the central US: from just south of Canada to the Gulf coast. West through the prairie states: DKs, KS, TX; east to the Ohio and Tenn. Valleys. The Dickcissel prefers the open country: grain or hay fields and meadows of wildflowers and weeds. The male attracts a mate; the female builds the nest and cares for the young. Winters are spent in Mexico or further south. Photo Copyright © Jim Chagares.

Sora - Learn how to identify Sora, its life history, cool facts, sounds and calls, and watch videos. A small, secretive bird of freshwater marshes, the Sora is the most common and widely distributed rail in North America. Its distinctive descending whinny call can be easily heard from the depths of the cattails, but actually seeing the little marsh-walker is much more difficult.

Saw several Sora's out in the open today at the old Cedar Bridge lookout. These are elusive marsh birds, often heard but not so easily spotted. It was a treat to hear the conversations between them!
