Steve, it's too soon for them to ALL be gone...
My last dates here are generally the first week of OCT.
Had my usu fem/imm come a couple of times already today. There may have been two yesterday.
Last male seems to have been the one that came on 9/5.
I also will keep up a feeder, but only until Turkey day this year. In past years I have gone until the 1st of the year, but after a decade of no show rarities, I've lost patience...sorry George.
