Okay, that's what it was. I was at a yard in Normandy Park (SW Burien)
yesterday am, heard the whistle, looked around, and saw a male Anna's. He
was stationary, then flew off.

Subject: [Tweeters] Anna's vocalization or wing noise?

>>For about the last month I have heard a single sharp whistle call note
with no new bird to account for it when I've tried to track it down. It
happens once and then usually it will be at least half a minute to a minute
before I hear it again and I'll hear it two to three or four times before it
stops. Earlier this week I heard the sound twice when our Anna's was doing
its display. Could this be the source?<<

We have 3 winter Anna's residents, and we, too, heard a strange, sharp
whistles like the above about a month ago. We were in the front yard, and
looked all around trying to figure out where it was coming from. The only
bird in evidence: An Anna's. And sure enough, when we heard it again, it
seemed to come from him, but he was stationery, not displaying. Had never
heard it before in all our years of watching them, have not heard it since.
