State Birds and Flowers
Content-Intensive Poster
Item: EDU37
In Stock: Yes
36 x 24 in.

This beautiful poster was inspired by the stamps issued by the United States Postal Service in 1982, which quickly became the best-selling ones in American history. You would expect the state bird of Maryland to be the Baltimore oriole and you can understand New Mexico being represented by the road-runner, but why did dry, land-locked Utah choose the California seagull? It was because in 1848, the gulls saved the early settlers from starvation by eating up the Rocky Mountain locusts that were destroying their crops. The fifty states are listed alphabetically. Each bird and flower is identified by both its common and its scientific name.
