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 second half of August 2021 included a snapshot of a Red-tailed Hawk, a Pink-footed Goose sighting, an adorable photo of a female Red-breasted Merganser with her ducklings, and more!
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
This Red-shouldered Hawk keeps a close eye out as it perches calmly and quietly among the grass at Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach, Florida. Thank you to Marilynne Strazzeri for this submission to our U.S. & Canada Gallery.
