Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the second half of March 2021 included photos of a thirsty Fish Crow, a pair of Barred Owls, an up-close portrait of a flicker, and more.

Barred Owls use courtship feeding and preening to bond for the breeding season. This pair was in Steve Rushing's backyard in Decatur, Georgia, for an intimate moment before their hectic lives as parents start in a few weeks.
