Pishing is a technique birders use in the field to attract small birds in order to get a better view to identify them.
I have my own technique I’ve been using that sounds like a bird chirping but with this new found information I was successful my first try. I’m not sure what bird (mockingbird) this is and also attracted my neighbors cats that seemed to know what I was up to, LOL! Cats have a chatter of their own when bird watching that is curious.
Below is my take on life on Park Avenue.
The next day January 20th I tried their technique and succeeded with the chickadees. Left over King Cake for my friends and will stop by and pick up more suet today.
