Why does my cat make weird noises when she sees a bird?

My cat spends a lot of time looking out of the window. Whenever she sees a bird or other small animal she makes this weird noise . Why does she do that? What does it mean?

One cat person came up with the idea that the cat is imitating the bird's chirp with it's chatter. I think that the cat is probably frustrated or excited about seeing the bird and not being able to catch it.. It's normal behavior for a cat. When they are actually on the prowl and catch sight of prey, they try to be as quiet as possible so not to alert the prey.
