Every day on Facebook, Instagram, 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.
Winter is the time of year to look for Red Crossbills as these nomadic birds extend their range looking for food. Christopher Ciccone added this pic of one in Massachusetts to our galleries about four years ago.
