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 first half of November 2020 included an American Golden-Plover eating a worm, a great image of a Purple Gallinule, Common Redpolls feeding from a photographer’s hand, and more!
