This was a standard piece of bird observer accessories since at least in the 1970s (which is when I started) at least among the members of the Bird Observers Club. I have owned several over the years. I always used to have one tied to my binocular strap. Must admit I let it lapse about 10 years ago. Mainly because it needs to be topped up with the powder (rosin I think it's called) otherwise it stops working. I think it much more effective in attracting little birds that vocally attempting to make squeaky noise, which gets really hard beyond ten seconds. Then there is the efficacy of bothering the birds so much, just so us lot can get a better view of them. Maybe I should get mine out and recharge it and have another go.
