I have friends who have a hummingbird hanging around their feeder.  They are
worried that leaving the feeder out will cause the bird to stay longer than
it should, and in the end, be detrimental to it.

What is the conventional wisdom?    ..keep feeding and let the bird decide
whether to stay or go?   .or stop feeding and force it to move on while the
weather is still warm?
