50 State Birds of the U. S.- Part Two

Updated on August 15, 2014

50 State Birds of the U. S.- Part Two

In the United States, each state legislature is responsible for selecting its state bird. The selection of state birds began in 1927, when the legislatures for Alabama, Florida, Maine, Missouri, Oregon, Texas and Wyoming selected their state birds. The last state to choose its bird was New York in 1970. Many states are represented by same bird, so although there are 50 states in the U. S., there are just 29 different state birds. The following list is arranged by popularity, that is, the number of times each bird has been selected for state representation, along with the bird's year of selection. This lens is part two of three of the collection.
