      It was May, and - given the dearth of migrants - that means one thing:
      Breeding Season. For the first time, I was out and about and actually
      looking for evidence of breeding. As in every other case before, when I
      started looking, I noticed the three-leafed clover I'd overlooked be-three,
      as Bugs Bunny once said.
