Chrissy and I didn't realize there were Hemlocks in Tower Grove Park until today.   She heard Red Crossbills flying over the tennis courts (located near the very center of the park) and then heard/saw 7 Red Crossbills fly into a Sweetgum tree for a split second then call/fly to another Sweetgum tree and then call and disappear in the direction of the Park Office/Piper Palm House/Directors Residence complex.  Walking over that way, Chrissy spied Hemlocks on the west side of the Director's Residence - right at the intersection of Tower Grove Avenue and Magnolia.  Sure enough, the 7 Red Crossbills were in one of the Hemlocks.  (4 males, 3 females) She a few photos them:
