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 photos we selected in the first half of January 2021 included a Snowy Owl in flight, a “consoling moment” between two Black Vultures, a portrait of a Townsend’s Warbler, and more.
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
Ring-billed Gulls are strong and graceful flyers, and are adept at snatching food from the air. Bob Betancourt photographed this one in flight at the Famosa Slough in San Diego, California.
