Can anyone tell me how to fix this noise? Only makes that noise when I first start the car in the morning. [VIDEO]

03 Ford Escape Ltd V6. Does the starter motor need to be replaced or something different?

Listening to it thru my transistor radio like speakers on my laptop, it sounds like the serpentine belt slips when the engine starts.


I don’t have a clue but it sounds like a bird. The mysterious part is that it seems like it makes the noise before the starter engages. Could the bendix be making that noise I wonder?
