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 below from the first half of October 2021 include photos of Eastern Bluebirds, a close-up of a Gila Woodpecker, a dramatic group shot of Boat-tailed Grackles, and more!
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
Despite being the smallest owl in Taiwan, the Collared Owlet is nothing short of a raptor. It’s diurnal, and often preys on other birds and reptiles close to its own size. Birdwatcher Ikfong submitted this photo to our World Gallery!
