In case you do get there read the captions of the first two photos here. 
The NW back corner of his lot seemed to be the best viewing spot,
everything's up hill.
His road is very steep and with snow/ice could be a big problem. Here's a
street view looking down hill with his house last on right.,+St+Louis,+Missouri&t=h&layer=c&cbll=38.487513,-91.854827&panoid=VZohFrtMJHZARGx4i9NHLQ&cbp=12,316.53,,0,14.17&ll=38.487575,-91.855043&spn=0.002914,0.004624&z=18

This is view of the back of his yard from hwy "U". There is a road just to
the left (rotate view) where you might be able to park on. Lots of truck
The Golden-crowned was spotted by Chrissy across "U" on way in once.

btw, I added more photos and hopefully the videos now work.
