    First comment: I don’t know how to whistle. And I don’t go around trying.

    I worked with a fellow who whistled tunelessly all day. It sounded like a steam leak, and drove everyone nuts.

    many people can whistle. some people can whistle through their teeth. others can whistle with fingers in their mouths. while others can whistle through their nostrils.

    And then there was the woman who complained about the new guy in the office. He was always whistling dirty songs.

    Then there’s my Mother-in-Law, she “whistles” by exhaling and inhaling through pursed lips To her it sounded good! It made makes my flesh crawl! It’s like fingernails on a blackboard!

    Actually, Cardinals do have different whistles. There are three near my home that I can identify by the different songs they sing, and on a trip south [I’m from Ontario] through Tennessee and Florida I could hear regional variations.

    @Dave M

    Southern cardinals have a drawl, while cardinals found in the west have a twang?

    Ravens can spot another raven a mile away and know if it is a “friend” or stranger! (Berhnd Heinrich, author of Mind of the Raven)

    When I was young I could whistle by pursing my lips the normal way but my brother could whistle without any sign on his face. Other than the fact his lips were open you would see nothing different (had to do with how he held his tongue to whistle). I was so jealous I had to practice until I could do it too.
    It came in real handy as a teenager when I wanted to whistle at a pretty woman without her knowing it was me. So long as I made sure there were others around and she saw my face while whistling, they never figured it out. =)

    I could whistle tunes from my throat as a kid, but it all changed when I hit ‘the age of acne’….

    We had a mockingbird singing at midnight outside our bedroom and my husband sang back at it. There was a brief moment of silence as it considered, and then it sung his tune back at him. Yeah, we were pretty thrilled (to say the least. It was a very cool moment.)

    “Anyone Can Whistle”. Just ask Stephen Sondheim.

    The cardinal would disagree… but how could we tell?

    Could be, electoman, that you’re thinking of a jay? Cardinals whistle beautifully.
