Another Yellow-rump at Essentia

Rob writes:

I found a dead yellow rumped warbler on Wed Oct 1st about 2pm, looked like it had hit a window at the 1st street Essentia in Duluth. Thanks for recording all this.  Should we put out feeders for the poor migrants? 
Yellow-rumped Warblers don't digest seed, but have been visiting my suet feeders this fall. I'm not sure how nutritious suet is for them in the long run, but Yellow-rumps have the capacity to digest many foods other warblers cannot, so in this case I'm trusting their judgment. It is such an awful feeling that these tiny birds can't count on us big, smart humans, isn't it?
