What is this flycatcher trying to say?

In this short (0:52) video, taken on a windy morning at our Central Florida home, a great crested flycatcher sends out high-pitched calls while perched on an uppermost branch of our white mulberry tree.

Is the bird telling other birds about a new food source it found?  Or maybe warning other birds away?  Whenever I hear vocalizations like this I can't help but wonder what message the bird is trying to convey and who exactly he/she is trying to reach.
