Pretty neat - I never saw it in person, though. Have you?

And, ummm...I'm not ready - was only excited to have a good guess. Will you or someone else take this turn and I'll let y'all know if/when I'm ready to take my turn?

Yeah, on my family's vacation trips every summer, it was a landmark we would all watch for when driving along the river in the 1938 Pontiac. It's now a good trivia question: What major sports team is named for a personage on that state's tallest statue.

Here's another for the bird fans:

No idea about the bird.

Yes, the statue of Black Hawk.

The bird naturally occurs only in a very small range, of less than 10,000 square miles, which is to be identified.

So, the location of their range is the place to be identified this time?
