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.

My first flute from the Oregon Flute Store arrived today, a black bamboo flute in E by James Galliland. It plays with beautiful overtones and a wonderful, lively breath. It easily reaches two notes above the octave, bright and true. It doesn't seem to get as wet as soon as my hardwood flutes. I also have a hardwood E flute and while I love its tone this bamboo flute really moves me. It's a bit quieter and a bit softer and it invites the ear in to listen. This flute is also so very beautiful to look at, and it weighs next to nothing.

Thank you so much for all your help and guidance, for packing and shipping this flute with such care, and for giving artisans like James Gilliland the best possible kind of place to bring their gifts to the public.
