The legislature of each state in the United States has designated one bird species as the an official "State Bird" for that state. In most cases the bird species that was selected is indigenous to that state and is often recognized as being associated with that state. Many a state bird was selected by a state before the species was "officially" named by the American Ornithologists' Union. Some states even have two official birds. The Official State Birds Designations of the 50 US States provides an interesting historical perspective as to events taking place during that period of a State's history. Birds are among the most popular state symbols in the United States.
