Moonee Ponds Creek. Arden Street Bridge.
A game of hide and seek, with a difference, played) by father and son (8-10 years).
The game is for the son to hide and make a bird like whistle call and for IT (the parent) to find the son hiding guided by source of the whistle – and for the son to elude being found out while continuing to making calls to lure and distract the parent to catch him out.
