Peter may have been about to crow, but his face puckered in a whistle of surprise instead. (Peter Pan)

Does the red mean a kind of whistle sound that comes out when you are surprised?

    Yes, there is a typical surprise whistle that starts off high (perhaps rising further) and then comes down in pitch rapidly.
