    Sorry I don’t have a picture of our State bird. Oregon State bird is the Western Meadowlark; and unfortunately I have never seen one here in Oregon.

    I live in the Western part of the state and the Western Meadowlarks in Oregon are most commonly found in the eastern half of the state. From what I have read in eastern Oregon, much of the sagebrush and grassland habitat needed by the Western Meadowlark still exists. West of the Cascades, however, much of the open grassy plain has been destroyed for rural and urban development of agriculture.

    The Western Meadowlark is also the state bird of Kansas, Nebraska, Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota.

    I would dearly love one day to see one of these birds in my backyard.

    I was not aware that the Cardinal is the State Bird for so many states. This one was photographed in my home of Eastern North Carolina. This was taken during a January ice storm.
