Go here for a slowed-down and pitch-lowered example of the Snowy Tree
Cricket's song:

You can hear that there are three groups of notes. The first group is
composed of two notes, and the second and third groups are composed of
notes each, for a total of seven notes. This is the typical chirp (or
"drumbeat" when slowed down) of the Snowy Tree Cricket. Humans can only
the complete pattern when a cricket is very cold indeed.
