Interesting Wren behavior

Donald Lewis

Twice in the last few days I’ve seen an adult Bewick’s Wren pick up a seed from a crack in our deck and give it to a nearby adult Bewick’s Wren. It’s too early for a fledgling to look adult, there was no wing fluttering, and the two then flew off in different directions (the fed one not following the other). I don’t recall seeing this before. Has anyone seen such an interaction? Was it a courting thing?
