It wouldn’t be a summer at the cottage without spying the red wings of a passing cardinal or hearing the lonesome call of a late-night loon. Birds are as much a part of the cottage experience as boating and bonfires. That’s why we’re featuring this year’s best bird photos from around the world.

The photos are part of the Bird Photographer of the Year 2021 competition, which is now entering its sixth year. Photographers from 73 different countries submitted photos, all competing for the grand prize of £5,000.
