Another rarity in Prospect Park

Late this afternoon John Ascher found a Sora at the south end of Prospect Park. Here is his e-mail:

This evening I found a Sora in Prospect and got some photos (one attached). It was feeding at dusk from 6:45-7:30 in and along the reeds just to the left of the concrete duck feeding area with benches near that Prospect Park SW entrance.

Here are a couple of Google images of the location along the edge of Prospect Lake at West Island.
