Tree frogs were chirping so abundantly that they sounded like crickets.
The night was quiet, no insects chirping, no water gurgling.
Birds flitted from tree to tree, chirping at each other and battling over the best roosting sights.
A steady chirping and whistling came from the forest.
Haydn uses a true Straussian discord in The Seasons, in order to imitate the chirping of a cricket; but the harshest realism in Gatterdammerung (the discord produced by the horns of Hagen and his churls in the mustering-scene in the second act) has a harmonic logic which would have convinced Corelli.
