Çığırtma or çağırtma[1] is a Turkish folk instrument of the wind type.[2]

The çığırtma is made from the wing bone of an eagle. It is known to be used mostly by shepherds and is an almost forgotten instrument today. It has a total of seven melody holes with six on the top and one underneath. It is about 15–30 centimeters (5.9–11.8 inches) long.
