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 June 2022 include a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron tending to its egg, in-flight images of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and an Indigo Bunting, and a stunning portrait of an Altamira Oriole. Enjoy!
This young Peregrine Falcon hatched in 2013 in Toronto and was named Layton. Rob Mueller took this photo on the day "Layton took her first flight off the nest ledge some 20+ stories above the street."
