Oregon Flute Store Catalog > Bird Whistles
The Aztec word Huilacapitzli refers to bird whistles and ocarinas used in ancient Mexico. The prefix “Huila” means morning dove. Guillermo’s whistles are hand fired for 12 hours, then hand painted with Aztec designs using colored clays and burnished with a smooth stone to give them a velvety feel. They are perfectly tuned using a special diamond tool and are capable of precise clear musical tones. Offering a wonderful accompaniment to the flute, great for flute gatherings and talking to our feathered friends. All whistles come with neck carrying strap, and have a full set of how-to-play instructions.
