Many thanks for posting, John.  The Thursday WGNSS group went to N & Fiese after TGP and Blue Grosbeak Trail in St Charles County.  Nothing behind condos, but we then went past the original nesting tree and Richard Coles in the last car of the caravan saw him on a low branch, so we all got excellent looks at the gorgeous male complete with flight displays and a song.  No sign of female, yet.  Bonus was a Blue Grosbeak which flitted around in the next tree; a grosbeak had been missed by a couple of the group when we had seen it beyond the bunker on the road behind Hampton Lake at Busch.  What a great end to a beautiful birding day!
Posting later tonight on the trip.

I've been watching for about a week and a half, and he's back!!!

I just photographed a Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher at Hiway N and
Fiese Rd., behind the condos.

I'll post photos later today.

I snagged a wirelss network and am emailing from "the site".

I'll put together a Google Earth map like I did for Blue Grosbeak
Trail, also later today.

Ain't it great!!!
