My birds sit facing each other and put their beaks together and make lots of noises. Are they being affectionate or are they being overly aggressive? I don't know if I should enjoy this behavior or be concerned about them being in the same cage together.
This is generally considered affectionate behavior. Humans call it "kissing".
If your birds are attacking each other, there would be feathers flying. If either bird ends up missing a lot of feathers they should be separated. The behavior you describe is not a cause for alarm.
Affection is what they are showing. Believe me there is no doubting when they are showing aggressive behaviour . They would be attacking each other & flying violently around the cage - sometimes one will hold the other down & attack it.
