I had an adult Prairie Falcon just west of Weston, MO in Platte County around
2 p.m. today. Although I doubt this is a very "chaseable" bird, here's
directions:

From the south, take 45/273 Hwy. north past Weston. Immediately after
crossing a bridge over the railroad, turn left (generally south) onto a
gravel road--this is Nowers Road. Take the first left onto Harpst Road and
head south. You'll cross over the railroad tracks and then go through 3
doglegs; at the 4th dogleg the road goes east over the levee (Harpst Road) or
turns back south (Kirk Road). Go south on Kirk Road. At the next dogleg there
is another road running east toward the bluffs. The falcon was moving around
south of this intersection, basically between Kirk Road and the river.

This is the same area where a Snowy Owl was found late in December 2001, for
those of you who chased that one. It's all wide-open disked farm land.
