    Used by past photographers to take photographs. The reservoir was filled with water and one blew into the tube. The bird's beak and tail move as it makes a warbling sound. This is from my mother's hometown of Sebring, Florida. The note states that it was given to a little boy in 1926 by Sebring's founder.
