ILLINOIS BIRD, Madison co., IL

Googled Horseshoe Lake (HSL) Madison county IL and got the area where 
the MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD
was found. Too stupid technologically to figure out how to mark google maps
and get the link for the zoomed in section.
David Scheu told me how some time ago, but that info
is on an imploded computer now and my mind is a steel sieve.
Will ask Jim this evening.

Anyway........

manipulate map south and west of HSL to find the streets off of Hwy 111 and
before the RR Tracks.
zoom in to get names of roads -Bischoff & Sand Ridge roads
you can get driving directions from one's doorstep to Bischoff Road.
OR:
Directions from St. L:
- Take I-64/40/I-55/70 over the MS. River
- Take the I-55/70 left split.
- go to Hwy 111 exit (#6)
- Turn left onto Hwy 111 and go north.
- Go ~ 2.0 miles (+/- a few tenths) to Sand Ridge Road which is NOT
marked. It is a road in the middle of group of houses and across from
the HSL boatramp.
- Turn right onto this road and go a few miles to Bischoff road. There will
be a Plantation House/Antiques sign here.
- Turn left onto Bischoff road.
- Go past the Plantation like home (brick with columns) and continue on
straight to the levee and cell phone tower. (Still Bishcoff)
- The bird was frequenting the telephone lines and the levee along Bischoff
"in front" of the new brick home with loop drive. A bit to the NW and a bit
to the south depending on disturbances.
- Would look from the cell phone tower to the next road.
- There is scrubby secondary growth behind the levee (PRIVATE Property)
and it could be using that area as well.
BTW, Levee is private property as well.

Hope this is informative enough because I have other obligations to 
attend to.

Good chasing,
