I know this is not the place to ask for help in identifying flowers, however, I would be grateful if someone can either direct me to the right site or knows what kind of plant this is. Walter Marcisz and I saw it while doing a birding survey for BCN at Burnham Prairie, Cook County, IL.

Larry Hodak sent me the following reply to Sam's request for help with ID:

"I don't have Sam's email address but the flower you saw is Tuberous Indian Plantain (Cacalia tuberosa). I monitor IBF but I have never registered.  Maybe I should."
