     Hi All.
     Selective occasional use of the Audubon squeaker can be extremely
effective in attracting birds, as can "pishing", but most responding birds
quickly learn to ignore both if used for any length of time,(without any
harm done I would imagine).
      For best results with rarities like Black or White-throated
Grasswrens, use tapes to "tune" the squeaker to the squeak of the bird
you're after, don't just squeak indiscriminately. Pushing hard produces a
much different sound to gently rotating.
