The Sora were calling for most of the time we were there. Several of the birds came out of the near by vegetation so we were able to see them. The most numerous of a species were the hundreds of American Coots which kept us company throughout the day. We enjoyed having George Fenwick, chairman of the American Bird Conservancy drop by for a visit. A second surprise was when Hayley Farr stopped by. She is from the United Kingdom and was in nearby Kansas City for a visit.
