I don't know of any bird that sounds like a multiple time-delayed drum echo. Maybe a goose.

What kind of bird sounds like a drum echoing?
Jan 27, 2004

The reverberation of a drum in the manner described does, in fact, produce a pitched sound (maybe a resonance thing?), and the downward-curving pitch (due to the doppler effect) makes it sound like a chirp.

A bit open-ended of a teaser, but I'd been in marching band long enough to know the 'chirping' sound of an echoing snare drum.
