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!
