What your state bird should be
Joyce Park stashed this in Birdwatching
This is what the Internet is all about: crazed birder critiquing the state birds, no holds barred.
Heh heh heh!
9. Florida. Official state bird: northern mockingbird
I am finishing this post the next day because I had to go buy a new computer after I threw my last one out the window when I read that Florida’s state bird was the northern mockingbird. I cannot think of a more pathetic choice for one of the most bird-rich states in the nation. What’s their state beverage, a half-glass of warm tap water?
What it should be: American flamingo
(FYI, it's a half-glass of warm *swamp* water.)
Wait, I don't see "the California snipe" anywhere on the list!
Snipes are real?!
