Students compete in 42nd annual bird-calling contest

I always knew the folks up in Northern California are a little... different. This proves that teenagers who live near Berkeley take bird calls to a higher level.

Big bird Aaron Macholl-Stanley and his buddies Shaheen Axtle and Derek DeRoche were part of the flock of bird callers willing to make feathered fools of themselves at Piedmont High's 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.
