four of these were up high in my neighbors pine tree, one was quite a bit larger than the other 3. high pitched squeaky voice. In South Carolina this evening. Thanks for your help! :)

how many repetitions in the call? if 3 or more I would say red-shouldered hawk but hard to tell from the pic for me

I heard its voice, when it flew to my backyard.  Definitely didn't have a fan tail, it looked long and narrow, but couldn't tell if it looked rounded on the end or not. I have other pictures but nothing any better than this pic. I have a close up of its face.

This looks like a Coop. The tail's too long for a Red-shouldered, and the bars are too broad. The outer tail feathers are clearly shorter, and the streaking disappears before the legs. Incidentally, all of the Accips give long series of calls, so that would only be useful in ruling out Broad-winged or Red-tailed.
