Abstract
An ethereal film depicting the storefront of a pet shop in Lakeview, followed by nature footage of swans and ducks in the wintery Chicago landscape. 
Description
Film begins with an establishing shot of a pet shop in Lakeview advertising "rare finches," many of which can be seen flittering about in the window. They are then shown eating dried oranges; the camera cuts to a shot of ducks waddling about in the rain, ending with a scene featuring swans chasing them away.
