I've noticed a similar pattern.  They seem to "work" the flowers more at the
end of the season.  Just now (~ 7:15) had a female Ruby-throat thoroughly
work through a fuchsia then go to a feeder.

9/15 - New Milford yard - one male and one female ruby-throat today - the  
male goes to the feeder but the female prefers flowers - Cuphea "David 
Verity"  (red tubes) and Salvia "Coral Nymph" seem to be the favorites, also

hosta still  flowering.
