Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. The shots we selected in the second half of October 2020 included a fantastic portrait of an Acorn Woodpecker, a Snowy Egret looking for food, a Short-eared Owl in flight, and more!

Linn Smith photographed this wild Egyptian Goose in Winter Springs, Florida. The species is native to Africa and is kept in zoos and aviaries in the U.S. Escaped birds have formed significant wild populations in Florida, Texas, and California, and several other states are home to smaller populations.
