Are those little squares reflective?

I think that they are and that you might be ready to answer.

Just got back from fishing central Oregon. Thought HawkFeathers would have you all clued in on this by now. The squares are reflective.

I have no idea but I'm going to take a stab at it based on the hints so far.
The sharp end looks dirty...So Im wondering if that gets stuck down into the ground when your hiking, hunting or tracking and then you can find your way back to it via a flashlight maybe? :shrug:
Am I close? Some kind of ground marker?
I cant come up with a use for that attached string though :confused:

It does get stuck into theground, but is used during daylight hours. The top also spins.

 It's either a bird deterrent or a bird decoy!

It is a lark mirror, the pointed end was stuck in the ground and the cord was pulled to spin the top part; the small mirrors lure the larks down for a closer look to find out what it is, and the birds are then taken with either a net or a gun. These were used mostly in Europe.

Theres nothing like a good lark hunt!.... :innocentwhistle:

 The lark is hunted in France using the mirror technique from over 200 years. A bird shaped object with small glossy multicolor glass pieces glued on it is placed in the field and removed, catching the attention of the birds during their migrations (October-November southward, January-February northward). The hunter does not hide, he just seats on a chair 20-25 m (70-90 ft) away. Larks are skewered and consumed back and belly.
