Bill, I cannot answer your query but I can tell you this: I always caution students not to report Red-shouldered Hawks based just on a single call.  The Blue Jays around here are pretty good mimics of the hawks.

Does anyone else wonder if some of the late Mississippi Kites being reported could be Blue Jays instead?  All I can say is that I have never seen a Blue Jay mimic a MIKI.  Have I everheard a Blue Jay mimic a MIKI?   I don't know if I have or not.
