I think I am hearing a "rotational" noise. I think it is coming from the front wheel. I'm getting a chirp-chirp-chirp sound as the wheel rotates. My first thought was wheel bearings. But would they make the chirp-chirp-chirp as the wheel turnes or would they just make a steady squeal? I'm pretty sure it isn't the brake pads. Suggestions?

That sounds viable to me. Mine just started making a similar sound after riding in fridays heavy rain. You can try spraying some wd40 on the bearing as you spin it & see if the noise goes away. If it does you're likely in need of new bearings. (Anybody, correct me if I'm wrong)

What kind of miliage does your bike have?

Worn disk brake pads will make that noise.
