Thank you, Logan. It was nice to see how things are out west! I will definitely add any of my Iowa spottings to your mission!

Great spotting! Good to see you crossed to the good side (of the river.) ;) You are more than welcome to add this and any spottings from Iowa to my mission!

Thanks, Bill. The one I saw in Davenport was the first one I had ever seen. Since then, I have seen two more:)

Nice spotting Stephanie! I used to see this everywhere at this time of year, and oddly enough, I've only seen two or three.
