It's been a strange warn winter in Chicago. On December 9, in the Soldier Field Parking Garage, John Bates found this bird gleaning insects and spiders along the wall deep inside the garage. This time of year most ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocappilus) would be down in Central America and the West Indies, but this bird clearly had other ideas.

(A floatation concept, using ping-pong balls, was actually first mentioned in a 1949 Donald Duck comic, and science fiction legend Arthur C. Clarke invoked a similar idea in The Ghost from the Grand Banks, suggesting billions of glass bubbles could raise the Titanic.)
