Some of those Trumpeter Swans
were still around, this time grazing in a cornfield near the river.

To show you how low the Cedar River is, take a look at the picture below. Can you see the "landing" just as the water comes over the dam? Yep that is LOW. That should not be seen.
Even the sandbars have appeared; those should not be seen either.
The continuing drought is the cause of the low river level.
