    Make one; hold the slit to your mouth; blow through the slit while pulling on the cut end of the larger rubber band that extends from the end that is not secured the small band. The more you pull: the higher the whistle you get. You should be able to make a wide variety of bird call and other sounds. It is quite effective and fun.
