Nice picture of an immature Sora, Hung- they don't stay out in the open very long. The Sora is one of our smaller rails, but I believe you have been misinformed about its status. There is an even smaller one - the Black Rail - which is endangered, and has been reportedly heard but not seen in several coastal estuaries, including Upper Newport Bay. Get a picture of one of those and you will have a real coup. Clapper Rail chicks are black and may be mistaken for Black Rails.
