Bird Puzzler #2: Sounds Like a (Rubber) Duck?

This puzzler comes in the form of a sound recording that I made on June 5.  Here is an excerpt of the recording:

Name the bird making the ‘squeaky toy’ call.

Some people will recognize the call immediately though I probably wouldn’t have guessed the species had I not actually witnessed the bird making it from a few feet away.
