strange noises

We recently purchased a home (3 level split) built in 76 in Mnpls, MN. When you run the water in the upstairs master bath (sink) a few moments later in the bath area opposite the sink (toilet and shower stall in a separate room)a sound like dripping or ticking occurs in the wall behind the toilet. This sound also occurs after the toilet is flushed and refills. Sounds just like water dripping a long distance down. But there is no evidence of any leaks. The sound occurs at all times of the year... isn't related to our cold climate, it seems. The ticking lasts for a couple of minutes maybe 20 ticks or so. The plumbing in the house is copper supply and that ugly black plastic drainage pipe... Any ides as to what may be causing the ticking sound we hear.
