Downy Woodpecker (DSB0194)
 
This is a series of photographs with a Downy Woodpecker working on excavating a nest cavity in a dead tree.  DSB117-121 show him after having gone into the cavity, prying loose some chips and then coming back out and tossing them over his shoulder.
DSB122-126 show the woodpecker looking around.
DSB127-130 show him ducking into the cavity, and bringing out more chips to toss away.

You are hearing a Downy calling, it seemed to be responding to a nearby Robin.
