Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 22,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the first half of January 2022 include photos of a fledgling Barred Owl, a group of American Goldfinches, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and more!
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
Leonard Billie took this photo of a Great Blue Heron at the Broad River Diversion Dam in Columbia, South Carolina. It took him a little over 30 minutes of moving closer to the heron to get just the right snapshot!
