Boobinch is the name of the emu caller. The man at the top of the painting is the father of the two boys, he has a cut off didgeridoo called a boobinch. He hits the top of it to make a sound that's similar to the female emu when it calls through its throat. He does that to call the male emu off the eggs. He's sitting there after the female lays the eggs. The bloke with the boobinch calls the male off the nest and the two boys go in there to steal the eggs.
