Bluebird became the state bird in 1967. It is found statewide,
usually at elevations above 5000 feet. It can be found at lower elevations
in colder winter months. Its diet consists of insects and berries.
The male bluebird is bright blue with white underparts. The female
is generally less colorful, a brownish color with a touch of blue on the
rump, tail, and wings.
The bluebird has been a sacred
symbol to many Native Americans who valued its rich blue feathers.
