?CALL WITH THE WINDS
Mountain canyons are almost always windy. In the mornings, you can anticipate up-slope winds, and in the afternoons, the winds typically blow downhill. Keep the prevailing winds in mind as you sound locator calls. Birds will hear you much better when you call with the wind. And keep in mind the echo effect of your efforts: If you call against the face of a steep canyon, you can bounce your sounds up side drainages and expand the reach of your searching calls.
