Well my hummer is back again for the 4th out of 5 years and has already made her nest on the same branch of the same tree again. She is a week earlier than last year which is strange considering the late spring we have had.  What is the normal life expectancy  of a ruby throated hummingbird?

The first hummer nest I posted failed, 1 egg cracked somehow out of 2 she laid. I took the nest down afterwords to show my daughter and I saw the femaler build a second nest less than 1 foot on same branch, She raised and fledged 2 young second week of August. I had another female make a nest above my patio in back yard and fledged 2 young from it last week of July. It was 20 feet above the ground so had to monitor with my binos. This female renested 4 feet away from original nest in mid august and is currently feeding 1 young  who looks to be near fledging as of today. This seems very late for them to still have young.
