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!

The Northern Shrike earned the nickname "Butcher Bird" because it saves food by impaling prey on thorns or barbed wire. Wilma McKenzie photographed this juvenile in Delta, British Columbia, two years ago.
