People in the northeastern mountains of Turkey use a form a
whistling to communicate with people far away. It's a
version of the Turkish language that's whistled instead of
spoken. The whistles actually translate to Turkish speech.
It's called ku? dili or Whistled Turkish. Roughly 10,000
people can still communicate in it.
The sound echoes among the mountains and can be used to
communicate relatively far distances (up to 5 kilometers).

July Midnight
Fireflies flicker in the tops of trees,
Flicker in the lower branches,
Skim along the ground.
