These are the state birds of the USA
Today is National Bird Day
Birds are used as symbols to represent each state in the US. They are chosen because they have special meaning for that state, whether they are indigenous to that area, or have particular historic or economic value. Kentucky was the first state to adopt a bird symbol, in 1926. Today, all 50 states have a bird mascot, and, as you’ll see from this list, many states have picked the same feathered friend.
