The flute (recorder) has long been used to imitate birds in music, as many of the references to Purcell and Handel and their contemporaries demonstrate. Lines like "Hark how the songsters of the air", "Hark how the lark and linnet sing", "Hark! how the songsters of the grove", "Hush ye pretty warbling quire" say it all.

Henry Purcell's "Timon of Athens" (1694) calls for "a Symphony of Pipes [ie alto recorders] imitating the Chirping of Birds".

Although originally written for Chorus and Recorders, I adapted this piece for Concert (Pedal) Harp and Woodwinds (2 Flutes & 2 Oboes).
