Ok, so I found the culprit. The wind causes my downspout to vibrate
against the house making it sound like I like under an elevated train
track when the wind blows. Any suggestions on how I can secure the
downspout so it stops making noise? Should I place some foam between
where the downspout and house touch or should I weld the gutter more
securely to the downspout so there is no play?
One story? What kind of siding? Enough straps? If not enough straps, so
the downspout is hitting between straps, then add some. If they are
loose, tighten them. If that doesn't work, a dab of caulk between the
downspout and siding should help. Could there also be loose siding that
is rattling with the downspout?
I have a simular problem, but it seems that it's the gutters
themselves. The wind blows up them, and sounds range from a toot on a
jug, to the gutters vibrate like a plane is over head.
I was told of two options, on secure it better, which includes the
downspout, or get a 'helmet' that allows for air to flow over it
without making much noise.
Just what I've heard.

haha i had the same problem. What a noise, eh? it took quite a while
what it was.
i fixed mine by inserting a 3x3 inch piece of 1/2 inch strapping
the downspout and then strapping the downspout tight against it.
the downspout is a little off the sidewall, not snug against it. if
snug, just strap it. Depot has the straps..
