Sometimes you attract something unexpected when pishing! What’s pishing precious? “Pishing is a technique birders use in the field to attract small birds in order to get a better view to identify them.” source – The Spruce. When I pish I try to imitate a Tufted Titmouse or a White-eyed Vireo alarm call. Sometimes it works, most often it doesn’t. Odd looks from passers-by are guaranteed. This Red-shouldered Hawk wasn’t impressed.
