Thanks everyone. The bird flew into a large window and sat around for awhile before taking off. That's when I got the close up.

I'd say Cedar Waxwing too. Chicago has a huge flock of them in one of our sanctuaries right now.

Quite a shot to begin with. I assume the bird is not hurt. Welcome to project noah.
