“When they him spy,
As russet-pated choughs, many in sort,
Rising and cawing at the gun’s report,
Sever themselves and madly sweep the sky,
So at his sight, away his fellows fly.”
[A Midsummer Night’s Dream – III, 2]

(This sort of thing is a perennial P problem. There may be better examples?)
How would Billy Shakes have pronounced Chough?
