When Jane Allen and I went up to Smithville Lake and Squaw Creek from St Louis 27-29 November, we counted over 60 Red Tails on the way up through Sunday morning without counting doubles.  There were a few Bald Eagles as well.
 
Thank goodness, this weather waited till after our return!

After a morning of winter birding I drove home on Hwy 63 from Salem, I know I saw a hawk every half mile or so, especially Red Tailed and a couple Coopers. This cold air brings them out.
