Male Pine Grosbeak Wrangell-St. Elias, Alaska
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
A male grosbeak stands out against the snowy landscape of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, its bright orange and black feathers a splash of color in the winter world.
Grosbeaks are known for their distinctive song, which they use to attract mates and establish territory.
As this male sings out, its bold voice carries through the winter air, filling the park with its cheerful melody.
