Default Loud high pitched noise

Hey boys and girls. Recently my PT Convertible 2007, 105,000 miles, is making a high pitched whistling type sound when first started up. It happens randomly, not consistently. No warning lights, no effect on driving that I can detect. It goes away fairly quickly when it does occur.
Anyone have any idea what this is?

Recently had the timing belt replaced, new water pump, new radiator.
Beginning to be a money pit

It could be a belt scraping against the timing cover.

Could be anything but belts, and pulleys are the most likely. All are difficult to get to. If you're not a dyi'er have someone look at it. Most cases not too bad BUT could be.
Good luck.

Mechanic said they needed to tighten the alternator belt. Said it should have been done when the timing belt was replaced. Didn't charge me for it.
We'll see if indeed that fixed it.
