Last year I decided to include a mealworm and dried fruit mix at my platform feeders, hoping that those items (as well as suet) might attract warblers. Today I saw the first yellow-rumped warbler since November 2022. He has been hanging out near the house much of the day, visiting the suet log and platform feeders several times.
