Female crestie making 'quacking' sounds?

Hello everyone;

I've had my female crested gecko for a bit over two years now. Just a couple nights ago, for the first time I've ever heard, she started making weird, loud "krrrr" sounds and shaking her head when I stroked her back. It's not the usual chirping, which I'm used to and hear all the time. I was looking around online and it sounds like it's just a breeding call they make; can someone confirm this? She's still active and shedding as normal. If it does sound like a mating call, could temperature changes have prompted it? Our house usually sits around 70 but we did just come out of winter where it was a bit chilly on occasion, so I'm wondering if the sudden warmer temperatures put her "in the mood."

During the breeding season the female gecko will make some weird squeaking sounds, this squeaking sound is usually a positive thing and is an indication that the female would like some male attention. The sound is there to attract a male and make it known that she is ready to mate.
