RTHUs are double and sometimes triple brooded in Missouri. A possible
renesting could also make nesting attempts occur at odd time.  This may
account for some of the very late hummers that are seen even rarely in
October.

Bill Clark and I went to Whetstone Creek CA in Callaway Co. this  
morning.  Nice variety there, with some easy access to several
habitats.

Our attention had just been drawn to a female Ruby-throated  
Hummingbird as she flew to the top of a shrub, when, WHIZZZZ, in  
buzzed a male.  He immediately began a courtship display--the shallow 

"u" flight pattern.  He went back and forth about a dozen times, then 

landed nearby atop another shrub.

This seems late, seasonally, for this activity.
