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 second half of September 2021 include photos of an adult and juvenile Wild Turkey, a group of Grey Crowned Cranes, a wonderful close-up of a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, and more!

This photo, taken by Edwin Bowe at Elkhorn Slough near Moss Landing, California, beautifully portrays the features of the Long-billed Curlew. The species has long legs, a very long, curved bill that is pink at the base, and feathers on the body and wings that are barred.
