A young Great Horned Owl chick (Bubo virginianus) sits on the top of a small white spruce tree in the boreal forest, Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska. The Great Horned Owl's distinctive tufts of feathers give it a regal appearance as it surveys its territory in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Bubo virginianus. Photo © copyright by Carl Donohue.
