'openings' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both natural objects as well as being plural nouns.
Perhaps you can see an association between them that I don't see?

'listen out' is the wordplay.
'out' is an anagram indicator (out can mean wrong or inaccurate).
'listen' with letters rearranged gives 'INLETS'.

'for' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for inlets that I've seen before include "Silent strips of water", "Small arms off larger bodies of water", "Narrow channels of water running from sea or river", "Silent as sea entries to land", "Silent sort of coves".)
