    If you are finding dead birds, particularly songbirds, in the early morning, it’s almost assuredly the result of a nighttime window strike during migration. There are things that  can be done to help to prevent this.

    Sadly, there used to be decals to prevent bird strikes on many of the windows, but they were taken down during the pandemic due to "renovations." Administration has not been very responsive to calls for them to be put back.

  2. Found this morning on Temple University's main campus in Philadelphia PA, between the Bio-Life and Beury buildings. Best guess is that it smacked into one of the 3rd story Bio-Life windows. Green back, yellow breast, black cheeks, about the size of a small computer mouse. The only bright yellow birds I've seen near here (about an hour north) have been goldfinches, but I don't think that's what this is.
