Thank you Dick Palmer for the perfect directions. I went this morning and was delighted with the views of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks! There was also a pair of Wood Ducks and a few other wonderful birds. I had a delightful time. I had only ever had a
slight view of these beautiful ducks in the past, so it was almost like seeing a life bird!

24 Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were present this morning along with at least
6 Little Blue Herons ( all adults)
Starting from the restaurant at 2160 Creve Coeur Mill Rd drive south about 1/2 mile to
Waterworks RD, turn right and go to the stop sign for River Valley Drive. Turn right again
and proceed a total of 1.6 miles from the restaurant to the small parking lot
on the right.
The birds were visible from the parking lot. Binoculars work but a scope is better.
