    Mine do that at times, when they get annoyed and someone comes too close and they are lower on the peck order.

    I'm new, but I've found some are just more vocal than others. I have one black sex-link that is just about to get renamed to Wendy Whiner. She makes a squawk similar to the one you recorded just about anytime things aren't going exactly her way.
