It was! I counted 20 bird species that I photographed (some as yet not identified),with the prize being this one!

Also took several fuzzy pics of one of these which I don't think I'd seen before.

I'm not sure which warbler this is, though.

Nice picture of a Sora! They can be hard to spot and definitely hard to get a good photo of.

Warbler is a Yellow-rumped. You actually can see a sliver of the yellow rump.

One of the useful things about eBird is you can see what is being reported at this time of year. Gives you ideas about what something might be.

The sora had been spotted by another bird watcher who mentioned it to us in the parking lot so we went back and looked around where he said it had been seen. Sure enough it popped out of the grass.

I thought the other was probably yellow rumped (based on others' eBird lists as you say), but one pic I saw was much darker so wasn't sure.
