Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the first two weeks of August 2021 included an amazing photo of American Goldfinches, a sighting of a juvenile Little Blue Heron, a fantastic photo of a pair of Trumpeter Swans, and more!
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
Here's Scott Zimmermann's story on getting this photo: "When driving down a somewhat busy 2-lane state highway in rural northwest Ohio, if you see a Bald Eagle drop into a field 15 feet off the road, should you swerve wildly into an open spot on the berm? No, probably not. But I did, and this was the reward."
