Hi Pete,

Don't worry about either the Hummingbirds or the Orioles.  Food
availability is not really a driver in migration timing for any species.
That would be quite maladaptive.  Other cues, including but not limited to
day length, sometimes combined with wind direction, atmospheric pressure,
tilt of the Earth (as evidenced by changing night sky), and other things.
I am simply trying to say that you should not feel guilty at all of leaving
your feeders up (or taking them down) when it suites you.  It is wonderful
that you feed them when you do, and I hope you feel good about that.  I
plan to leave my hummingbird and oriole feeders up until we have a chance
for a hard frost.  There is plenty of food out there now for nectar and
fruit feeders, but some late migrants might really appreciate your feeders
when the nights start getting frosty!

Take care
Jody
