I live in Wildwood, MO, just west of St. Louis, in St. Louis County, and I have noticed consistent RSHA activity in more rural areas of St. Louis county since 2003. Last year two pairs nested along a creek I frequently bird on, and fledged two chicks each, and I know for sure one of them is nesting right now- haven't visited the site to note eggs, chicks, etc. but I am told they are quite active as of the last two weeks. I haven't noticed more red-shouldered hawks in population, after the young fledge they seem to find their own territory- given the nest sites are also frequented by Red-tailed hawks, Great Horned Owls, and Barred Owls. I can't relate to more northern locations, but it seems the populations here are doing well.
