What does the state bluebird mean?
The bluebird is the state bird for New York State. This bird is actually red, white, and blue in coloring and is found mainly in the northeastern states.
The eastern bluebird was chosen in 1970 as the New York state bird. On April 13, 1928 it was revealed that the bluebird had won an informal referendum held under the direction of Mrs. Charles Cyrus Marshall, of the New York State Federation of Women's Clubs. So people began to push for the bluebird to be chosen.
Idaho and Nevada have the Mountain Bluebird (Sialia currucoides). Missouri and New York have the Eatern Bluebird (Sialia sialis). Seven states have named the Cardinal as the State Bird. Six states have named the Western Meadowlark. Three states selected the American Robin. Two States have a domestic chicken as the State Bird.
