Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections below from the first half of September 2021 include photos of two forms of Steller’s Jay, an Atlantic Puffin, a wonderful snapshot of a Burrowing Owl, and more!
Visit our galleries to submit your photos and gain inspiration from the BirdWatching community.
