Photos of the day: May 1-15, 2021

Every day on FacebookInstagram, 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 first half of May 2021 included photos of a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, a family of Mallards, a pair of Gray Catbirds enjoying a sweet snack, and more!

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