I have a pecking noise when I crank it cold.

(2005 Toyota 4Runner)
in Burnsville, NC on October 30, 2013
The noise will last around 8-10 seconds and then go away. Is it a lifter, evac pump or what? It's not valves ticking...to loud for that. It has done this for ages and is really annoying, although it doesn't seem to be hurting anything (yet that is).
