Photos of the day: December 1-15, 2020

Every day on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. The shots we selected in the first half of December 2020 included a group of Wood Storks, a stunning portrait of a Painted Bunting, an Osprey after catching a fish, and more! 

Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
