Black-capped Chickadee in Wrangell St. Elias National Park
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
A black-capped chickadee flits among the branches of a snowy tree in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, its small form perfectly adapted to the cold.
These birds are known for their energetic personality and distinctive black cap and bib, which make them a familiar sight in many North American forests.
As winter sets in, the chickadee's bright eyes and lively demeanor add a touch of cheer to the snowy landscape.
