Photos of the day: January 1-15, 2021

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 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.

The name "waxwing" comes from the red tips the birds have on their secondary feathers. Steve Ricketts photographed this Cedar Waxwing in a field behind his house.
