> Yesterday, Monday, Aug 3rd, ~ 8pm a Male RT Hummer visited our feeder in a wild cherry tree in our yard in Havemeyer Park. He left, soon followed by a female. The male returned, and seemed to chase her away. However, a few minutes later, we saw him return about 30' away from the tree doing the 'U' shaped flight maneuvers (courtship?) about 15' - 20' in the air,  with several repetitions. Soon thereafter, the female returned to the feeder, fed, and moved up higher in the tree. Shortly thereafter, we saw the male approach her with a repeating side to side (courtship?) flight. From our vantage point we couldn't see much more as it was getting darker, and they departed. Whether together or separately  we couldn't tell.
> Is this considered a mating season for hummers? Sure seemed the male was interested in this particular female.
