The Sora is a rail that is found in parts of North, Central, and South America. The breed in marshes and other wetlands, with a lot of vegetation, through out much of the United States and Canada. Nests are usually built on floating vegetation in shallow water. Both parents incubate the eggs which take a little over two weeks to hatch. The young are able to leave the nest a day after they hatch, although their parents still need to feed them. Sora's eat snails, insects, spiders, crustaceans and a variety of different types of seeds. During the winter the sora migrate south to the southern United States, Mexico, Central America, and northern South America. During migration it is often possible to see them in agricultural fields where they may stop to feed.
