Students compete in 42nd annual bird-calling contest

The threesome took second place in the competition, which may win them a spot on "Late Night with David Letterman," a dandy perk for a bunch of high school students.
The man himself, Letterman, will review the videotape of Friday's contest, and choose three or four callers to appear on his show later this month, according to the contest's producer, Amy Booker.
