Good addition! Another good example would be 'the leaves of the trees rustled in the wind'.

This area appears to have been totally overlooked! Here are more sound words:

silence - 'There was an eerie silence in the thicket' (A)
cry - 'Did you just hear toruk cry?' (A)
hum - 'There was a hum in the clearing from all the insects there'. (B)
drone - 'The flute choir made a drone for the singers to sing by'. (C)
din - confusing sound 'The returning hunting party was making quite a din'. (C)
noise - 'did you just hear that noise' (A)
flutter - 'The lizard's glowing wings fluttered in the night air'. (B)
roar - 'Palulukan has a mighty roar'. (A)
squeal - 'The hexapede squealed when the viperwolves attacked it'. (B)
buzz - 'You could hear insects buzzing during the afternoon heat'. (B)
chatter - 'The stingbats chattered high up in the tree'. (B)
cacophony - 'There was a cacophony of sounds in the forest after the helicopter flew over'.
    (C)
click - 'All was silent in the bushes except for an occasional click'. (A)
(boom) - (edit) - kxangangang
bang - 'The tawture's gun went 'bang' '. (B)
thud - 'The strumbeest fell to the ground with a thud'. (B)

Here's some more, some suggested by a friend trying to learn a little Na`vi

crackle -  The crackle of the fire was delightful that night'. (B)
growl - 'The viper wolves growled at the thanator'. (B)
clatter - 'The bow fell to the groud with a clatter'. (B)
woosh - 'The arrow made a slight woosh as it left the bow'. (B)
sputter - 'The oil burned with a sputtering sound'. (B)
thump - 'The thump-thump-thump of the drums could be heard for miles'. (B)
crunch - 'The viperwolves could be heard crunching bones long into the night'. (B)
pop - 'The sudden pop from the fire took everyone by surprise'. (B)

I bet you can think of some sounds I missed!
