It's possible your rear brake linings are wearing thin or getting down to the most harsher/harder part of the linings. Also, if the noise is only initially after the Honda has sat overnight or several hours and goes away after several stops, it may just be condensation/rust built up on the rotors. With the amount of moisture we've had in our area this is possible too. If the noise doesn't go away & is consistent, I'd recommend having an auto service professional take a look at the situation to be on the save side.

Agreed but if happens when applying brakes or when apply light pressure with park brake when moving then could be shoes/pads worn into the metal.
