well, there are birds all over the place in the northeast pa region. it's actually tough to pick a singular spot as i mentioned they are everywhere, getting to be like pigeons.
i started out using a higher pitched "sweet" sounding mouth call, although those birds reacted, they still tended to walk away. i went to the slate, once again higher pitched, no big response. went to a raspy mouth call and box, it must have been what they wanted to hear.
seems (at least that day) raspy and cackles got them in broken up with a few purrs when they got in close.
turns out the bird was actually 8.25" beard and 17.5 lbs (my scale was off by 2 lbs) and i took another measurement on the beard after i posted.
