Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 22,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the second half of October 2021 include photos of a hungry Belted Kingfisher, a close-up of a Mourning Dove, an unusually colored Baltimore Oriole, and more!
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
This photo, taken back in February 2021, showcases a Mourning Dove sitting in a heated birdbath that had been buried by deep snow so only its head was visible. As the temperature begins to drop, consider a heated bird bath for a bird-friendly yard all winter long!
