Photos of the day: April 1-15, 2022

Every day on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 22,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the first half of April 2022 include a close-up of a Ruffed Grouse, four Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks soaking up the sun, and a male Painted Bunting at a feeder. Enjoy!
