Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the nearly 20,000 photos in our Reader Galleries. Here are the images we selected in the second half of June 2020. 

Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community. You can also enter your best images in our Color of Birds contest.
