They just flew into my door 10 minutes ago. Together.

 

Different kinds of finches?

Looks like a House Finch on the left, and a Yellow-rumped Warbler on the right.

Thanks, 

Maybe they wernt flying together? 

 

Thought they both hit the glass at the same time. 

 

I have several feeders so there's lots of birds around.

The finch is probably a local, the warbler likely migrating through.

Not to likely the warbler would be interested in the feeders, mostly insect eaters. The finch would though.

They get all mixed together this time of year with the migration going on.

I'd guess one was chasing the other around but who knows.....:why:

Or they was a hawk nearby they both were trying to evade.

yellow rumps actually do sometimes visit feeders, especially this time of year and suet. probably the only warbler to do so far as i know.

 

also agree with looney, could have been holed up in shrub or bush with the house finch and flushed in a panic.

Every once in a while a hawk spooks the sparrows at our dock. almost every time this happens a few slam right into our front door. A few die while others just knock themselves out for a few minutes. 

If it's nice out and the door is open we can end up with a dozen sparrows in the shop. They panic when a hawk hits the dock and just don't have the time to pick out glass doors or windows.

I do have suet directly behind the house. And hawks.

 

Thanks for the responses.
