With one hand are the lid in holes the Coyok, the thumb on the end of the bamboo thick and the other end with the rest of your fingers, so that the peak (bamboo smallest) is pointing towards our mouth.

There are thousands of sounds of birds that can mimic, using the movements of the fingers and also of several blows air. Some may be soplidos; as a direct Tuuuuuu, or Trrrrrrr ....., Taka-Taka-Taka, and so on.
