Photos of the day: March 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. Our selections from the first half of March 2021 included a Barn Owl in flight, a rare sighting of a Western Grebe in Austin, Texas, a pair of Black-hooded Parakeets, and more. 

Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.

"This Western Grebe showed up at a lake near Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, March 10 and immediately became a local sensation among birders," writes Jason Garcia, who posted the photo in our Rarities Gallery. "With only a handful of records in Travis County, it is a true rarity for the region."
