To me this sounds very similar to the call of a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.

It's call was virtually identical to that of a juvenile Bell's Vireo on Xeno-Canto, but this may be shared among Vireos. I have attached a medium-quality recording below (including some pishing by me in the middle ;)). The bird had yellow more towards the rear underside than most Cassin's, a lighter eyering and gray hood, and whitish extending up the side of the neck behind the auriculars.
