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!

This Roseate Spoonbill has been at Edwin Forsythe NWR in New Jersey throughout August. It's one of many sightings of the species this summer in the eastern U.S. that are well north of the spoonbill's usual range on the southern coasts. Photo by Marian McSherry.
