At Marymoor Park in Redmond, we saw a Chestnut-backed Chickadee inside the cylindrical seed feeder located on the east side of the park office building. There was a Black-capped Chickadee on the feeder poking its head in the feeder openings. After a short period, the Chestnut-backed Chickadee escaped out of a side hole and both chickadees flew off. The top was on the feeder the whole time.

>> When I went out to put out feed for all the feathered folks in the yard I got a surprise when I took the metal lid off the sunflower feeder. Out flew a pine sisken! Fortunately it flew off into the trees and not into my face. Sure would like to know how that little guy managed to get the lid open. At least it had a comfortable abode for the night. Plenty of food, shelter from the rain and predators. Maybe the other siskens dared it to go in. You never know what siskens might do.
