The United States of Birds

US State Birds on a map (design by Anand Gorantala)

 

On our National Holiday here’s a map with each state illustrated by its State Bird.

Web designer Anand Gorantala created this Visualization of US State birds on a map by placing photos of birds into a Wikipedia map file.

Click on the image to see the original with a link to the interactive version.

Test your knowledge:  Identify the states and birds.  Which bird is most popular?  Which birds are non-native?  (Tricky!)

Happy Fourth of July.
