Chew, Chew sound

by Maureen
(Palm Coast, FL)

I only hear it; I can't see it. Early morning, before dawn even. I hear a "Choo, choo, choo…choo-choo-choo-choo-choo! Or maybe more of a 'chew' sound. Sometimes it'll do five quick 'choo's' and sometimes six. He actually seems to stop when it starts to get light! Can you help?

I have one too and it's not a cardinal. Medium size...between a chickadee and a Robin. No distinguishing Marks other than it has a light gray back with a white body. Medium sized tail. I live in East Coast Virginia.It is a loud bird.
