State Birds of the U.S.- Part Three

Updated on May 15, 2015

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

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 the third and final of the collection.

      I love this guide (three lenses) to state birds. In the past I laughed when I heard that seagulls were the state bird in Utah. Then one time when I visited the Salt Lake Valley, they were everywhere. No wonder, they treat the Great Salt Lake like it's the ocean.

      Thanks for the great lists of birds! Beautiful pictures! I lensrolled all three to my bird lens. This would be great for students who may be researching the topic. :) 5* (or thumb up - I guess that is what it is now ?)
