I concur with Mark but I feel there maybe two birds here.
I would never rule out the Raven, I have some weird sounds from those guys!

A nice, clear recording. I wouldn't dismiss ravens - I've heard a lot of
strange noises come from them, and have heard two-tone noises that have a
similar popping sound. I have not, however, heard anything quite so
high-pitched at the beginning of the calls. As well, the calls always seem
to be relatively quiet compared to other raven noises. The mic must have
been very nearby if it was a raven.

Gray Jay & Blue Jay are other candidates, but I've never heard either do th=
'popping' noise.

So in summary, I guess I really have no idea!
