- From I-70 in NW St. Louis county (Maryland Heights area)
- Take the Earth City Exit SOUTH and continue on this road, Maryland Heights
Expressway (MH Expressway) for a few miles, past Marine Avenue  (landmarks
you will pass are UMB Pavilion, Harrah's Casino, Schmittel's Nursery and
- At the intersection of CC MILL ROAD (stoplight along MH Expressway) turn
LEFT onto it.
- Follow this road a mile or so to the SEEGER West County GOLF RANGE on your
right. Enter the Golf Range, drive past the front office/check-in and drive
to the back of the driving range. Along this road at the corner as it turns

-At the corner of Wise Road and Red School Road (the "Y") go left.
- I had ETS in the trees here and there along this road.
- Also had ETS in the Cedars at the Ebenezer Cemetery and then across Coral
in a bare tangled bush (near the small fenced in area)
- Also had ETS in the trees on Red School Road just past the intersection of
this road and Coral Island road
- also had a large group in the trees next to the nice house with the
swimming pool & grain elevators. Private property, so please stay on the
road and have respect for the home owners (no LONG stays please because they
have had break-ins recently in this area. I have been stopped by Police in
this area and asked what I was doing)

 III. MARAIS TEMP CLAIR CA - St. Charles co., MO in between St. Charles, the
town, and West Alton (google MO Dept of Conservation for map and directions)
- Main headquarters parking lot off of Island Road, there was an ETS taking
something into the vent of the little brown check-in building (nest building
or already have nest there)
