Patient of the week: Sora Rail

Photo by Isabel Luevano

Our latest patient of the week is a Sora Rail, currently in care at our San Francisco Bay center. Rehabilitation technician Isabel Luevano reports that the bird was found in Concord, CA, having apparently been caught by both a dog and cat in a backyard. There were no visible injuries on the bird except for one small puncture wound on its chest.

Good news: The bird is doing well in care, Luevano reports.

  1. Hi
    Is it common for a sora to have a totally black head? I took a picture of one of these in big bend national park, but the ones I’m familiar with have a black face but not a black head.
