Photos of the day, September 1-15, 2020

Every day on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from more than 20,000 photos in our Reader Galleries. The shots we selected in the first half of September 2020 included a yawning Great Horned Owl, the first Brown Booby ever seen in Ohio, a fantastic photo of an Indigo Bunting, and more! 

Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
