With no exposed shoreline to forage on (due to high water levels) the yellowlegs were feeding on aquatic life by walking on the floating plant material in the middle of the river and slowly sinking. Sturgeon rvr .St.Albert, AB.
This Sora decided to give me a break and started preening while I just sat on the ground in the tall vegetation and watched the bird coming and going in and out of the cattails and Sedges.. It was at ease with my presence and gave me lots of time to take shots. That does not happen too often with a Sora.
