Sora (Porzana carolina)
The Sora lives in wetland areas such as marshes and along the edges of large bodies of water. They eat seeds and invertebrates such as insects and snails. Soras weigh 1.7-4 oz. and are about 7.9-9.8 in. in height. They have multiple calls, some of which are “sor-AH” and a repeated “ker-wee.” They are protected on the US Migratory Bird list.
