As dusk descends, you can hear the tu-whit
tu-whoo of tawny owls in the trees and, by contrast, each morning the robin's song establishing his territory couldn't be more forthright.
The sweet birdsong and the rasping of the winter's wind were heard in Under the Greenwood Tree; the brittleness of winter, in Blow, blow thou winter Wind; and the tu-whit
, tu-whooing of a staring bird, perfectly matched by voice and flute, in The Owl.
tu-whoo: A written representation of the sound made by an owl.
