I'll leave you with their gentle “roucoulement” cooing
About her in the tall trees of the allee the percherons twittered while the soft roucoulement of the bees murmured drowsily in the tall calice of the chou-fleur.
She rolled delicately about, like a very large, very pretty, and exceptionally graceful cat; she made fantastic gestures with her paws and tail; and she purred literally "as gently as any sucking dove" -- _roucoulement_ was the only word for it.
More familiar sounds are the _roucoulement_ of the pigeon and the tapping of the woodpecker.
