A real Loud Samba Powerhouse !
It emulates the call for the Tinamou/Ynambu , a bird belonging to the family Tinamus, Genus Crypterullus. The most popular species are the Inhambu-Xororo and the Inhambu-Chinta. They are found in almost all of Brazil preferring the hot climate of bushy forests and abandoned plantations . They obey to the call better in the months of October trough January
How to use in nature:
Start with long chirps to locate the birds in the surrounding area (a long blow and a short blow, plugging and unplugging the orifice respectively.)
Notice that on the sides of the whistle there are two orifices, one on each side. Blow, plugging the side orifices, unplugging them partially at the end of each blow of which there should be 3. Pause for a short time and repeat the 3 blows in the same way however, ending the same sequence with very short blows, with the orifices plugged and with a rapid descending cadence. Once you have located the bird chirp the male call for some time by performing two blows, the first of which is longer and with the orifices unplugged, and the second which is shorter and with the orifices plugged.
