It is midday and a bit slow, so I’m taking a break and willl be going back out later today. Meanwhile, I saw a SORA today!! I first heard it at a very large marsh 15.5 miles away from Haines on highway 7. Eventually I saw it, twice, tiny bird with a little bright yellow bill and flicking upturned tail, as it picked its way across the mud through the stems. It called a couple of times and then all was silent. I may look again for it this evening. I did get pictures of the marsh and beautiful pictures on the flight from Juneau to Haines this morning, but my hotel connection here is a bit weak, so I’ll wait on posting pictures.
