Resolution to change state bird to osprey soars through Oregon senate

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon senate voted to change the state bird from the western meadowlark to the osprey Thursday.

The senate voted 24 to 5 in favor of Senate Concurrent Resolution 18.

The resolution said, “The western meadowlark is an unoriginal choice in that it is also the state bird of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wyoming.”

It also said the western meadowlark is relatively rare in the areas where the greatest number of Oregonians live.

1. I love Ospreys

There is a mating pair close to where I live. It is so cool to hear them call to each other at dusk.

2. I love ospreys.

I also love meadowlarks.

The osprey would make a good state bird.
