With his permission, I’m reproducing it here for discussion: A possible word of caution regarding analysis of chipmunk calls as discussed at http://earbirding.com/blog/archives/454: I don’t necessarily disagree with your conclusions, but there are caveats to be considered. Don Roberson of Creagrus fame sent me an interesting and provocative email in response to the old pygmy-owl vs. chipmunk thread (1 2).
Xeno-Canto, the Macaulay Library and the Borror Lab, between them, have nine recordings of the primary song of Northern Pygmy-Owl, from California, Oregon, Montana, Colorado and Utah. Cats make it when they see a bird outside the window, or a mouse in the house, or in your case a fly. Gannon, William L. Special Publication the Museum of Southwestern Biology. However, this was prior to the acceptance of the split of “Townsend’s” into four species, as proposed by Sutton & Nadler (1974) and Sutton (1987) [citations below]. The description is a pretty good match for the pygmy-owl-like sound, but I think the real clincher is Brand’s spectrogram of the “chuck” call: I fiddled with the axes on the spectrogram of Andrew’s recording to make the two as comparable as possible, and although there are slight differences, the similarities are striking, right down to the faint third voice in between the fundamental and the first harmonic. hahaha i would trade u a stuffed cat for ur chipmunk cittyy. when she heard the words "chicken dinner deal". Brand was using a Kay Electric Company spectrograph machine on the wide-band setting, which explains the much thicker lines on his spectrogram. Short-winged, often keeping its longish tail either cocked above the line of the body or slightly drooped. I think this is likely the case. Locations undercover are better than exposed areas. Bubbly and energetic, just like their songs. However, I have generally attributed the note to Mt. 1987. I do think this could be the right answer to the mystery, but I would appreciate some analysis on why it is not a Mt. Reasons: The Least Chipmunk is the most widespread chipmunk species in North America, occurring throughout much of the Rocky Mountain and Great Basin regions, plus the boreal forest from the Yukon to the U.P. Now, the 4-way split is universally accepted. The Michigan sound is similar to the probable Merriam’s Chipmunk “chuck” from California, and all western chipmunk species (including Least) are supposed to have similar “chucks,” according to Brand (1976). Chipmunks, like squirrels, can easily climb bird feeders to get at the tasty treats. Chipmunks particularly enjoy sunflower seeds so try picking those for your birdfeeder. Nonetheless, the evidence points to this being the “chuck” call of Least Chipmunk. When it comes to backyard bird identification, a lot of people will rush off to find their field guide as soon as they see a bird that that they don’t immediately recognise.
Bubbly song is given frequently in spring and early summer. Systematic revision of three Townsend’s Chipmunks (Eutamias townsendii). Choose a small trap (approximately 10 to 20 inches long) with small wire mesh so the chipmunk cannot escape. In response to a couple of Don’s questions, I’ll say: I think we may have a lot to learn about chipmunk vocalizations! Or of a different type of vocalization than the primary song? Southwestern Naturalist 19: 199-211. I have never seen a chipmunk giving the call, although Merriam’s is common there. Comments? Are they not even pygmy-owls at all? My friends male cat just gave birth ...Is that strange ? Lots of cats do that. Dark barring on the wings and tail contrast with the more uniform brown plumage elsewhere. Backyards, farmyards, and city parks are perfect for them. The chittering noise that some of them make when they see a bird is quite common to many cats.
They're so excited.

Each chuck was from 0.03 to 0.05 sec long. and southwest Quebec. Get Instant ID help for 650+ North American birds. See the Xeno-Canto forum discussions (here and here) of Allen Chartier’s seven cuts of fast Mountain Pygmy-Owl song from Oaxaca.
A "brown-throated" subspecies of the House Wren occurs in mountains of extreme southeastern Arizona. that starts at I live in Monterey County and probably know the spot better than any other birder. This is clicking. One of the major reasons for the split was the differences in vocalization between the four species. It,s normal. Eastern Chipmunk is not closely related to other North American chipmunks. Almost all of the energy is concentrated in the fundamental, but a couple of faint harmonics are visible, which is standard for pygmy-owls. Quail was seen not long after and close to the source of the call.

Small, nondescript brown bird with a short tail, thin bill, and dark barring on wings and tail with a paler throat. See more images of this species in Macaulay Library. My cats do it all the time when they see birds outside or a laser light on ceiling....its cute. But a few things about this recording are strange: Because the sound came from the ground, Andrew surmised that he might have recorded some kind of mammal. They click there teeth together, because they would love to get to them. Shes about 4 months and I had 5 five cats in total, but none of them ever made this sound.
I did manage to find a recording that matched Andrew’s: Doug Von Gausig made this recording in almost the same place: along the Carmel Valley Road just east of Carmel, California, on 24 March 1999. It's a hunting noise which probably serves no purpose, like purring. Smaller than a Carolina Wren; chickadee-sized. Upon returning home, I discovered that the U.P. I've had cats who chirped, and cats who warbled, and cats who howled, and cats who squeaked. Southwestern Naturalist 32: 371-376.
The call you have posted as probable Merriam’s Chipmunk “chuk” is a very commonly heard vocalization at Chews Ridge. She wants those birds. Often pushes tail downward while singing, unlike other wrens. In doing Breeding Bird Atlasing there and other similar habitats in the Santa Lucia Mts., there have been circumstances when a Mt. None of the birds in these recordings quite match the Spencer/Von Gausig birds in note length or pitch, and most strikingly, none of them come close in rate: the Borror bird from Utah and Jason Beason’s Colorado bird average about one note every 1.5 sec, while the rest, including the Montana bird, average a note every 2.0 sec or more. The pale eyebrow that is characteristic of so many wren species is much fainter in House Wrens. Songbird seed mixes have plenty of seeds that chipmunks will love and enjoy so fill your birdfeeder often to draw both birds and chipmunks to the yard. I do hope your kitty's are in door kitty's, because if not they would be killing our pretty little creatures.
