About this book

Learn the arcane yet effective art of pishing from a master. In this unique book and CD package, renowned birder Pete Dunne presents an illustrated workshop on how to attract birds by making precise and well-practiced hisses, whistles, chips, and squeals (along with some kisses and thumps) that almost guarantee spectacular success in the field.

The text explains the hows, whys, and whens of 13 different pishes, including the basic pish, stutter pish, whisper pish, knockdown pish, screech-owl warble, sequential chip, and squeal. The soundtrack features audio demonstrations so you can compare your efforts to an expert's.
