What do these squirrel sounds mean?

Watch more with these video collections:

The Squirrels at the Window YouTube channel has shared over 180 videos of furry visitors snacking on coconut, blueberries, mealworms, and other treats. How did this connection start?

“One day we threw an almond to a squirrel who was passing by our window and the next day that squirrel came up to our window looking for more food. Now, 4 years later, we have around 30 squirrels, chipmunks, rats, raccoons and different kinds of birds who come to our window. It’s becoming like one of my subscribers said ‘the wildlife drive through window.'”

intimidating another squirrel?
After observing squirrel behaviors during these visits, SATW attempts to decipher a few squirrel sounds, including a defiant warning sound that might alert other squirrels to predators, chattering teeth and buzzing sounds that show displeasure and could be an attempt to intimidate, and purring, made by one specific squirrel in the local scurry.
