Handmade in France by François Morel using beech and metal, the blackbird call can, with practice and attentive listening, be used to imitate the trills and modulations of their song. Best sucked and blown fairly gently, using the tongue to control stops and variations. Supplied in a box with brief instructions. Information on the blackbird, and a sample of their song can be found here. Based in the hills of the French Rhône-Alpes region, M. François Morel has been making instruments so that he and others might communicate with birds since he was a young boy, creating 'toys' that he hopes might inspire in their users a greater love of nature.
