While this doesn't sound like any nightingale I've heard, it does produce some very convincing bird sounds. You can affect the sound by changing the amount of water as well as by how you play it. This is probably the best bird whistle I've heard.
I originally heard this for many, many years by the now dead percussionist extraordinaire, Rob Fried for the band Max Creek. Very surreal when listening on archive.org Once I found out this was the exact model, I ordered it. It says to fill it up 1/4 of the way, but since it doesn't come apart, you need to measure with tablespoons. (It fits 2 tablespoons, btw). You'll eventually add more water and less to find deeper tones. I like to bring it on DJ Nite and jam away with different rhythms and tweets to practice as you need to manipulate your breath, lips, air flow and tongue. Real fun, esp when it's mic'd.
