Reader photos of raptors, warblers, and more

Our readers continuously impress us with their bird photos. They enter images in our photo contests, post in our online galleries, and send us terrific pictures for the magazine’s “Your View” section, our regular collection of photos from readers. In our July/August 2020 issue, we filled “Your View” with a dozen photos featuring birds as varied as Yellow-breasted Chat, Harpy Eagle, Pine Warbler, and Eastern Bluebird. Below are all 12 reader photos from that section. Enjoy!
