Kissing chickadees

Chickadees are fascinating and fun birds to watch. They’re pretty aggressive and highly individualistic, from what I have observed. Monday morning we were sitting at the breakfast table watching them dart around between the spruce trees and the cable that runs between our house and the line in the back of the yard when we saw something unusual, one chickadee make an offering to another chickadee. In the photo the chickadee on the right was perched on the line when all of a sudden the one on the left landed on the line and quickly shuffled over to the other one and offer whatever that green thing in it’s beak is (worm?) to the other. The one on the right seems surprised. It must be mating season. Anyway, even though the photo is bad I thought it would be interesting to show.
