Photos of the day: December 16-31, 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 second half of December 2020 included a portrait of a Red-bellied Woodpecker, images of both crossbill species, and a “posing” Cooper’s Hawk. 

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