What do you get when you have 801 Barred Owls calling in a single place?
Hopefully, a Guinness world record!
801 attendees at the 2011 Midwest Birding Symposium gathered in the Hoover Auditorium at Lakeside Ohio last Saturday and, under the direction of the bird call lady Nicole Perretta, called out that familiar Barred Owl call, "who cooks for you? Who cooks for you all?"
Three times these 801 voices called out in hopes of establishing a Guinness world record for the most people imitating a bird call in unison.
What fun being part of a possible Guinness World Record, even though in the process, we caused the local Barred Owls to seek out a new territory (only kidding!)
Be part of the fun. The Midwest Birding Symposium will return to Lakeside OH in September of 2013.
