Texas State Bird
Mockingbrid
next symbol

The mockingbird was adopted as the official state bird by the Texas Legislature in 1927. It is found in all parts of the state. And like any true Texan, the mockingbird is known as a fierce protector of its home and environment. If a person or an animal gets too close to its nest, the mockingbird will swoop down on the predator. The song of the mockingbird is actually the calls made by other birds.
