Whistle, 2 pieces of a twig, split down the middle and strapped together at each end. Each twig has a shallow indentation running the width of the flat surface, about an inch long. Between the two flat surfaces is a thin piece of bark which vibrates when air is blown through the hole. The thread strapping the two twigs together is black vegetable fiber.
