This is what it sounds like...
...when doves cry.
Channing Pollock was possibly the greatest bird manipulator in the history of stage magic. Watch as he effortlessly produces two birds at once from the empty black scarf - seamless. He appeared on several prime time TV shows in the 1960's, most notably Bonanza, Daniel Boone, and The Beverly Hillbillies.
Pollock retired from show business in 1969 to become an organic farmer in Moss Beach, California. He continued to mentor proteges and teach magic to young performers until his death in 2006 at the age of 79.
