Chickadee seeking building materials

I would have thought that Chickadees had their nests completed by late May, but this wee creature, along with a friend, were busy rooting around in our nasturtium hanging baskets on the back porch looking for nesting material.   The strands of dried grass stalks, lining the baskets, seemed to be satisfactory but the birds were very picky about the exact pieces.   These photos show the selection process, ending with a return to their nest...somewhere.
