Oregon, North Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana all have the Western Meadowlark as their official bird of state. But what is the bird that represents Kansas? Actually, it’s the same bird.

The Western Meadowlark was selected as the state bird of the Sunflower State in 1925. However, the state bird statute didn’t become official until 1937.
