Grey bird with white stripe on wings and tail

What is the name of these birds? They are all around my house in Woodstock, Ga. They are medium sized grey birds. When they fly, however, you can see each wing has a white stripe and so does the tail. It also makes a loud sqwaking noise.

Saw 4 of them in southern Indiana on my farm. No song but a beautiful bird. Very good glider. Tight circles didn't seem to be catching any bugs. looked thru several bird books and could not find them.

I reside in St. Louis Mo. Have seen this bird a few times. What got my attention to it was her/his songs...beautiful. Mostly talk about the white stripes, but no songs. Anyone hear several beautiful songs?
