It shouldn't be a concern for any migratory birds. At least that's true for the 
so-called "obligatory migrants". They are responding to changing light 
levels...that's what gives them the drive to migrate. A cold front followed by 
a good tail wind may be an impetus too. Feeding them won't trick them into 
staying...

Yes. My concern is that I hear tell keep feeders up for both hummers and 
orioles will "trick" them into staying longer than they should.

I've been told this is not a concern for hummers. How about Orioles?
Thanks

Feeding them isn't going to prevent them from migrating, if that's what you 
were worried about.

Can someone suggest an appropriate time to stop feeding hummers sugar water and 
orioles jelly?
Thanks
