How about some "steam"?

Steam rolling off of our backyard light this morning around 5:30am while letting the dog "do her business".

You know you are bored of railfanning when......

You start taking Seagulls at the Cedar River Roller Dam
and wishing for Bald Eagles.

Or the afternoon lull has made you "pooped".

Where's my key?

Where's my key to open my heart?
Well it wasn't here or at the location of

statue is.

A Heron stands in the Cedar River waiting 
on lunch.

Still waiting. He would make several attempts
at catching him some lunch.

A Hawk looks for some lunch too near the Prairie Park

I do not have any idea what these are. If you know, 
please comment for me. But they look interesting.
