Can anyone help with the meaning of ピイチク?

Can anyone help with the meaning of the word ピイチク? It came up in a kids’ study book that I’m working through at the moment. The sentence was ことりは ピイチク うたう, in a passage about the nature in springtime. Jisho and google translate both draw a complete blank on it. A google image search yields lots of とても かわいい canaries and similar caged birds but it seems to be functioning as an adverb in this sentence!

This is the nearest I can find right now:

The first definition seems to make sense for this instance, it elaborates what kind of signing it was.


Ah super quick, thank you so much, that definitely works! I didn’t know about that dictionary, will bookmark.
