This bird call challenged them!
Dolon
It is a lot of fun, and I hope to be able to make specific bird sounds on it soon with a little more practice.

I have had one of these since I was a kid and I now send them as gifts.

Yesterday, I found a minute to use this bird call. I twisted it for about thirty seconds, and hoped for the best. Things got quiet, and I ambled away, only to have a bird defecate on my head. Question: What exactly did the bird call convey to my resident avians? Anyway, it works!

These little wood and metal bird calls are a classic. My ten years love it, I've been looking around for instructions for all sorts of different calls online, and my folks remember having them when they were kids. If the shipping is too expensive, pick one up when you're in REI next time. The variety of songs producible with this little (and very simple) gadget is stunning.

If you're a handy DIYer, there are also plans online for this exact call and for similar ones...

I got my Audubon Bird Call years ago from the Audubon Society. I just recently took it out again and found it didn't "chirp" anymore. Turns out all I had to do is put a little of my violin bow rosin on the metal part and it's as good as new. This little device will bring in all kinds of birds, but mostly those that are a little bolder than most, such as the Black-Capped Chickadees. Just keep it rosined up and it will last for years.

This is a great product and takes me back to when my Grandfather first gave me one at the age of 6 (40+ years ago). I've never forgotten about it and when I came across this at Amazon, it took me right back to that time so I decided to purchase one:I had an idea. I thought that these pests called Mocking Birds needed a challenge. This bird call challenged them! I played with the bird call a few days and when the birds came around shrilling their tunes I would play a loud, short and intricate tune several times in a row as close to the same as possible. Each time the birds came around I would play this tune. I did this a few times and each time I would stop within a minute. The birds would leave. I believe that my challenge of "go ahead and top this" to the Mocking Birds have kept them away, perhaps practicing. :o) Oh, occasionally they come back and I play the tune and they disappear again. Love it! Get it and have some fun. Otherwise, if you love being outdoors take one along with you, you can draw birds to you out of curiousity.

We began to play with this little gadget, and shortly after, we were surrounded by birds in the trees above. It is a lot of fun, and I hope to be able to make specific bird sounds on it soon with a little more practice.

This doesn't produce any bird's call, but it makes sounds similar in pitch and duration to many birds and thus it attracts the attention of nearby birds almost instantly.
Easy, simple, and right on the money.

I've had one of these for at least a decade. I'm back to get one for my niece. It makes a chirping sound from the friction between the metal part at the top and the wood. I got it wet once and it stopped working. To fix it I let it completely dry for a couple of days, then unscrewed it from the bottom. I roughed up the inside of the wood part with a little sand paper and then dusted some rosin (the kind used on bows for string instruments) on the metal part, screwed the pieces back together and it's like new again.

My grandmother had one of these when I was a child in Ohio. I now live in S AZ and these bird calls work everywhere I have tried it.
