bird id

I have had a new kind of bird here all summer and thought maybe someone would have an idea. They're way too fast and skittish for me to get a picture. They are rounded and little perhaps like a chickadee. From a distance they seem to have a light gray breast with darker wing feathers and i think the tail feathers might be red or reddish. The distinctive feature is their sound. For such a little bird they are very loud, making a sound like a cicada that lasts 2 or 3 seconds at a time. Any ideas?
