Backyard birds weather Chicago storm

Chicago's airports and streets may be paralyzed by the snowstorm, but backyard birds like this cardinal made it to the local "restaurant" in one of Chicago's northwest suburbs. Why did the photographer take the photo through the window? Reported 15 inches of snow with 5- to 6-ft. drifts and temperature tonight predicted to be 15 below with -35 wind chill. Pretty balmy here in the U.P., hey? (Photo © 2011 and courtesy Sue Dunn. Reprinted with permission.)
