How we hear birds

This thing is doing the rounds of Facebook, etc, at the moment – a recording of a voice that sounds like it’s saying either Laurel or Yanny depending on how good your high frequency hearing is.

If different people can hear such different things from one recording, is it any wonder the bird call descriptions in field guides don’t make sense to everyone?
