Default A/C Compressor Noise, Intermittant

I'm having a problem with a loud hard to describe noise, kind of like chattering noise, coming from the A/C compressor on a 2011 Ranger with a 4 L engine for just maybe two seconds when the A/C is activated, only the first time when the engine is running when it's cold out. I replaced the A/C clutch cycling switch since according to a Tech it had a problem but apparently it wasn't causing the clutch chattering problem. It sounds like it is being rapidly turned on and off for around two seconds, only the first time when it's cold out. After the 2011 Ranger sets for at least a day, as I recall, then it will do it again.

Do you know what a person needs to do to fix it?
