Black-capped Chickadee, Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
A black-capped chickadee sits perched on a snowy branch in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. With its distinctive black cap and bib, this small bird is a common sight in North American forests.
Despite the cold, this chickadee seems undaunted, its bright eyes and lively demeanor a testament to the resilience of wildlife in the face of winter's challenges.
