[birdky] Hummers

I have been given several diffferent opinions about when we should take our 
hummingbird feeders down.  
Can someone give me an approximate date that we should?
I was always told Sept 15th,  then someone said they wait till Oct 1st to give 
those hummers from up north a chance to stop by and get some nourishment on 
their way south. That sounds logical..  any other ideas??

 I still have alot at my feeder for now.  A friend of mine about a mile away, 
who knows her birds, told me that she had a male hummer that only had a black 
throat, not a bit of red on it.  Is there another one around other than our 
Ruby Throated?

Thanks..
