Every day on Facebook, Instagram, 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 second half of September 2020 included a dazzling Summer Tanager, a camouflaged Eastern Screech-Owl, a fantastic photo of an American White Pelican in flight, and more!
