Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from more than 20,000 photos in our Reader Galleries. The images we selected in the second half of August 2020 include a Chipping Sparrow at a bird bath, a Great Egret during breeding season, and a Sooty Grouse among the wildflowers.
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
Breeding adult Red-necked Phalaropes have white throats, red patches on their necks, and are gray with light-brownish feathers on their wings. Tom Ingram photographed this one in Barrow, Alaska, about five years ago.
