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!

Look for Spotted Towhee along the edges of forests, thickets, and overgrown fields. Vern Johnson photographed this one in the Sierra Nevada foothills in Oakhurst, California, about five years ago.
