Every state has historically selected a state bird. Some were selected because of how populous they are in that state, while others were selected for beauty and rareness. Many of the states with two have an official state bird and an official state game bird—the most common game bird is the wild turkey. A lot of states share a state bird—seven states have the Northern cardinal and six have the Western meadowlark. Read on to see which bird has been chosen by your state.
