I had an email from David Krementz about a visit to Frog Bayou WMA during the last week of October. He uses a dog during hunting season. He found Soras (~12) and an American Bittern. My impression is that the grassy moist soil units at Frog provide excellent habitat for both species. Having a well-trained dog helps, of course.
Then yesterday, I received a message via facebook, along with a photograph, of a Virginia Rail that apparently impacted the First Security Bank Building in Springdale. We do see occasional live Virginias, in good habitat, but sadly, seems more often things like this.
