Birds of Kentucky: Hints get hummers to move out?

Cheryl Strodtman writes:
One lone Ruby Throat Hummingbird remains at the feeder after its large family took off a few days ago for warmer climes. Our family is divided as to how to encourage him to leave before colder weather arrives: one thinks it wise to take down the feeder so Mr. or Miss Hummingbird will "take the hint" and move on; one thinks it better to leave the feeder up until it decides to go on its own.
KBRLAre there any bird lovers out there who have suggestions?Thanks. - Cheryl Strodtman
