We went on a wild goose chase looking for the best bird photo; and boy, like a carrier pigeon, you delivered.
When many think of pets, they often think of cats and dogs, but these photo submissions remind us that our feathered friends also have homes with us humans.
The submissions are gorgeous shots, filled with vibrant color and a certain majestic-quality we didn't expect to see.
We're sure many didn't know birds are capable of having the very cutesy qualities of the internet-famed cats and dogs.
From playing with toys to eating cereal, each of these photos is a winner in our book.
For our new reader photo contest, brought to you by Korczynski's Photo Lab & Studio, we want to see how you celebrated the Fourth of July.
