On allaboutbirds the Barred Owl sounds way different to me ? https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Barred_Owl/

This is probably because that owl was not doing to "normal" song. Barred Owls have a lot of variation in their calls. Plus, that recording was probably taken within 10 feet of the bird, so the sound didn't have a chance to echo and reverberate through the trees, like we are used to hearing.

They have that distinctive call that many people recognize as “who cooks for you” “who cooks for you all” 


That's " who cooks for y'all ".  Northeastern birds sound like " who cooks for youse guys "; Canadian ones " who cooks for you, eh? "; Midwestern ones " who cooks, you betcha "
