English term or phrase: call-bird
Having arranged his nets, the bird-catcher disposes the call-birds at proper intervals ; as their sight and hearing is infinitely superior to his own. As soon as the wild birds are perceived, notice is given by one of the *call-birds* to the rest they invite the wild ones by what is called short jerks : this invitation is so strong, that the latter are stopped in their course, and, it frequently happens, that, if half a flock only are caught the remainder will immediately afterwards alight in the nets.
