Coming in for a landing
Black-capped Chickadee

Wayne says: "One of our favorite visitors to the backyard bird feeder is the Black-capped Chickadee. The distinctive black cap and bib; white cheeks; and gray back, wings, and tail make it easy to identify. The Chickadee will always have flock companions when they arrive and they seldom remain on the feeder perch long. They will grab a morsel and fly to a nearby perch to eat. Chickadees are found in Shoreline because they prefer an area with an abundance of trees and woody shrubs. The little birds are almost always universally considered cute. Their quickness to discover feeders add to the Chickadees' appeal."

Perhaps you should've looked more closely--this is a Chestnut Backed Chickadee,
also a Shoreline resident.
