A Payphone in Maryland Makes Bird Calls Instead of Phone Calls!
When was the last time you used a payphone?
A payphone is attracting attention at the side of a Maryland road because it doesn't make regular calls but bird calls!
The City of Takoma Park commissioned musician and audio producer David Schulman to create an interactive public art installation, and he came up with the Bird Calls Phone,a payphone modified to play the sounds of birds instead of make phone calls.
"It's a payphone that's hot-wired so that when you go up and press any button instead of making a call to humans you hear the calls of local birds," Schulman told WJLA-TV.
